Exploring the memory processes that support recognition memory using functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI)


Ethics ref: 14130/2018-4366-6036


We are interested in exploring which brain regions are involved in specific aspects of memory function. This study will use functional magnetic resonance imaging (a non-invasive technique) to explore which areas of the brain are used to encode and retrieve different types of information.


Please contact us, if you are interested and are between the ages of 18 and 35 and:


1. Are a Native English speaker

2. Have no history of neurological or psychiatric illness

3. Have no history of metal implant or metal pieces entering the body during an accident or at work

4. Are not pregnant

5. Have good eyesight (contact lens correction is acceptable; glasses cannot be worn)

6. Do not suffer from claustrophobia

7. Are right-handed


If you decide you would like to take part, you will be required to attend the University of Manchester’s 3T MRI scanner at the Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Facility. You will be given directions.


The study will take around 2 hours and you will receive reimbursement for your time and travel expenses.
