University Ethics ref no:

We are recruiting volunteers to take part in a study investigating the brain processing involved in the allocation of attention. The study consists of a session (no more than 1 hour) involving simple, behavioural tasks.

 

You would be asked to complete a questionnaire and a task involving observing images of everyday objects and abstract shapes, and making accurate spatial judgements about the images. We will also monitor the movements of your eyes while you complete the task. You will be compensated for your time.

 

We are looking for people who fit the following criteria:

- Aged 18-35.

- Right-handed.

- Fluent in the English language.

- Normal or corrected-to-normal vision (with glasses, no contact lenses).

- Without colour blindness.

- Must not be diagnosed or taking medication for any neurological or psychiatric condition (for example epilepsy, anxiety, schizophrenia, ADHD, depression).
