Participants needed for visual memory studies

EEG study

This study requires participants to come to the Hills Building (Edgbaston campus) to take part in an EEG study of visual memory.

What’s involved?

  • You will undergo an EEG. This is a non invasive procedure to measure your brain waves. It involves wearing an EEG cap (pictured right). We use electrode gel to increase electrode conductivity
  • You will need to be in the lab for about two hours and 30 minutes. There are some individual time differences, but you will be given £15 for taking part.

Unfortunately you cannot be considered for participation if you:

  • have a history of neurological/psychiatric illness, epilepsy or migraine
  • do not have normal/corrected to normal vision/are colour blind
  • are outside the age range of 18-25

If you have any questions or would like to arrange a time/date to take part, please contact Jumana Ahmad (ahmadjy@bham.ac.uk)
