Can you train your brain?

Researchers in the School of Psychology are looking for participants aged between 25 and 40 or 65 and 80 years old to take part in our exciting research testing whether ‘brain training’ really works. This project is led by Prof Heather Ferguson, and is funded by a large European Research Council grant.

The research team uses a range of questionnaires and computer tasks to find out whether cognitive and social skills can be enhanced through training, and how these training effects might change at different ages.

As a thank-you, participants receive £50 cash, a small gift, and be reimbursed for reasonable travel expenses!
