Participants wanted – Get £10 for participating in a 2-hour EEG study

This EEG study is part of a PhD project in the School of Psychology and Neuroscience.

In this study, there are two tasks. In one task, you will listen to a musical passage and respond to what instrument it was played by. In the other task, you will read sentences and respond to what colour the sentence was presented in. Electroencephalography (EEG) will be used to monitor brain activity during these tasks. This will involve a cap and gel being placed on the scalp. Hair washing facilities (including shampoo and towels) will be provided to remove the gel after the experiment. The study will take place in the School of Psychology, St Andrews.

The information you provide will be anonymous and held confidentially by the researcher (Joanna Moodie) and supervisor (Dr Ines Jentzsch). Before agreeing to participate, you will be given an information sheet that will further detail this research before you consent to participate.

This study will take about 2 hours to complete.

You will be reimbursed £10 for your participation.

If you would like to take part or have any questions about the study, please contact Joanna Moodie on
