The brain chemistry of seeing in depth

Volunteers needed for magnetic resonance studies of the brain.

MRI is a type of brain scan that allows us to see how the brain is organised, processes information and performs skills like speech or memory.

This scan is safe and does not involve any needles or injections.

We are looking for healthy volunteers to improve our understanding of how our brain creates the ability to see depth. You would take part in three sessions.

The first session at the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, Oxford, would take 1h of your time and involve responding to simple computerised visual stimuli.

The second and third session at the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging, Oxford, would take about 2h of your time. In the second and third sessions, you would be asked to lie still in a scanner and perform some simple tasks like looking at images in depth.

Who are we looking for?

Healthy fluent English-speaking men or women aged 18-45 who are not pregnant.

You will be asked questions about your medical history to check your suitability for an MRI scan.

If you are interested and would like more information please contact Dr Betina Ip at the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, Oxford.

Thank you for your time!
