Participants sought: neuroscience research on enhancing memory

The Monash Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre (MAPrc) are investigating a safe and non-invasive brain stimulation technique called transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). TMS uses magnetic pulses to stimulate a small area on the surface of the brain. MAPrc researches are investigating whether giving a few minutes of TMS to different brain regions can enhance memory. Volunteers aged between 18 and 55 who have no history of mental or neurological illness are needed! Participation involves four visits to MAPrc in Prahran. Each visit will take two to three hours and involve some cognitive activities, non-invasive brain stimulation and an EEG recording of your brain waves. You will be compensated $30 per visit for your time and travel costs. Enquiries: Ms Ting Ting Cao on 9076 6564 or at tingting.cao@monash.edu. Study link.
