fMRI 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
consists of a single session of up to 1hr 30 min where you view pictures
of different objects such as a book shelf presented on a computer screen,
while being scanned in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner. You
will be tested on your memory for the objects, while learning about the
usefulness of fMR to answer interesting questions on the functions of the
human brain as necessary for continued progress in research in the field
of Cognitive Neuroscience.
– You will be compensated $50 for participation in the 1 hr 30 min study.
The fMRI study is being conducted by Jordana Wynn, a PhD candidate in the
graduate Psychology program at U of T.
Location: Research Building in Baycrest Hospital, 3560 Bathurst St, North
