How many words can you learn?

Get involved in exciting new research where participants learn the names of new objects while having a MRI brain scan. If you are 18-35 years old, non-smoking, right-handed, and have English as first language then we would love to hear from you!

Participation will be conducted during business hours over the next few months and involves a 2 hour brain scan session (Wesley Hospital, Auchenflower) and a 30 minute follow-up session a week later (UQCCR, Herston). 

$10 per hour will be provided to offset travel and time costs, plus $2 per word able to be learnt and recalled.
