An expert psychophysiological research team are conducting a research study investigating how the mind and the body respond to cognitive tasks. With advanced techniques including MRI scanning, this study will assess cardiovascular, psychological, and neural responses. 

MRI scan of brain

The study is open to FEMALES aged between 18-30 years who meet the following criteria: no immune (e.g., glandular fever), cardiovascular (e.g., hypertension), metabolic, and kidney disease or conditions; no current illness; no prescribed medication in the last 4 weeks. No current fixed-teeth braces.

The study requires two visits to the School of Sport, Exercise, and Rehabilitation Sciences and the Birmingham University Imaging Centre, lasting 2.5 hours in total.

Upon completion you will receive an MRI scan of your brain as well as £10 compensation for your time.

Visit 1 will last approximately 45mins-1hour and visit 2 will last approximately 1.5 hours and will include:

  • In SportExR, fill in some simple questionnaires, take height & weight measurements and take non-invasive blood pressure recordings.
  • Visit to the Birmingham University Imaging Centre to complete an MRI scan whilst completing a a series of cognitive tasks.

If you would like to volunteer for the study or require any further information, feel free to get in contact on the details below and further information can be provided.
