Volunteers Needed for an EEG Study on Reward and Memory

We are looking for volunteers to participate in an EEG study on reward and memory. In our experiment, you will perform computer-based memory tasks. During the experiment, EEG brain activity will be recorded using a special stretchy elastic cap containing a number of electrodes that make contact with your scalp. This is a safe, non-invasive procedure. The whole session will last about 1 and half an hour. The main experiment will last about 1 hour, with an additional 0.5 hours for EEG setup before the experiment. You will receive monetary compensation for your participation.

You can participate in this experiment if you meet the below criteria:

        ·        Participants must be a native speaker of English aged between 18-35.

        ·        Participants must be right-handed and have normal or corrected-to-normal vision.

        ·        Have no history of neurological/psychiatric disorders.

Please make sure that you have clean, dry hair and a clean face (no make-up) when you come for the session.


The experiment will take place in the EEG Lab, Zochonis Building, University of Manchester, M13 9GB (you will meet the researcher in the foyer).
