Jordana_ObjectfMRIstudy_AdvertisementfMRI study of Memory for Pictures of Objects

Details: The Buchsbaum Lab headed by Dr. Bradley Buchsbaum at Rotman
Research Institute in Baycrest Hospital affiliated with University of
Toronto is looking for healthy males and females to participate in a
computer-based functional magnetic resonance-imaging (fMRI). The study
