EXPERIMENT PARTICIPATION: Neuroscience Study

Would you like to be a test subject in a neuroscience study? Have your brain activity measured and your attention and memory tested? (Compensation $15/hr)

 I would like to invite anybody aged 18-35 (must be right-handed and not have difficulties with hearing) to participate in a research study examining the mechanisms of long term memory for complex sound and attention in the brain (we will be measuring neural activity using an “electroencephalogram” or EEG).

The study is approximately 4 hours long. You will be compensated with $15 per hour plus travel expenses (TTC). You can have the option of coming in for one 4 hour session, or two 2 hour sessions.

The study will involve a “training phase” during which you will learn the location of an auditory target (tone) within complex audio-clips. You will be asked to remember the location of the tone within each audio-clip for the purpose of the following “memory task”. During both these tasks you will just be listening to sounds and pressing a button to make appropriate responses.

About midway through the session, we will set up the EEG – several electrodes will be placed on your scalp, face and neck (the skin is rubbed with an alcohol pad and the electrodes are attached with a sticky gel). The EEG is completely pain-less and risk-free (Approx 45 minutes set-up). You will then complete an “attention task” as we record EEG activity.

We have availability several days a week at the end of July, in August, and following months. Upon contact, I can offer several time slots to choose from.

Please email Jacqueline Zimmermann (jazimmermann@research.baycrest.org) if you are interested!

The study is being conducted at the Rotman Research Institute, Baycrest Hospital, located at 3560 Bathurst Street.
