Wanted: Research volunteers

Neal Hinvest, a lecturer within the Department of Psychology, is currently recruiting individuals for an innovative psychology study that uses Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI).

In collaboration with the University of Exeter, Dr Hinvest is investigating how the brain is involved when making certain choices.

If you participate, you will be asked to take part in a simulation of a common choice: whether to spend or save money. You will do this while in the fMRI scanner.

The task will involve you earning tokens. At certain points, if you have enough, you can spend them to obtain vouchers for music downloads, or even a new iPod Nano.

fMRI is a non-invasive, painless procedure that allows richly detailed images of the brain to be taken.

The scanner is at the Peninsula Medical School at the University of Exeter. Participation takes about two hours. Travel from Bath to Exeter can be arranged.

If requested, a detailed image of the structure of your brain can be provided for you to keep.

Participants must be aged 18-60 years; eligibility criteria apply.

If you are interested in participating, or would like further information before expressing interest, then please call Dr Neal Hinvest on 01225 383691 or email n.hinvest@bath.ac.uk
