  • You have normal or corrected vision.

  • You regularly eat breakfast.

  • You are not vegetarian or vegan.

Participation involves two morning visits (after an overnight fast) to the University of Manchester (Neuroscience and Psychiatry Unit, Stopford building).

If you are eligible and participate, you will be compensated for your time.
