Volunteering for Research

We are looking for volunteers 18 years and over to take part in our exciting neuroscientific research. We study the function of the human brain non-invasively using behavioural tests, MRI, MEG and EEG. These techniques enable us to work out what’s going on in your brain while you perform different tasks. Each study is different, and the requirements to take part will vary, so keep a look out for studies that are right for you. Before being invited to the Centre, a researcher will check that you are suitable for scanning. They will ask a number of safety questions including questions about previous surgeries you may have had, if you have any magnetic metal implants, and any tattoos that you may have.

To learn more about volunteering for a specific type of scan, please follow the links below.
