Imaging the human brain study

Participate in our study

Researchers at the Brain and Mind Centre are seeking volunteers aged between 50−70 years who are generally healthy.

Researchers at The University of Sydney are seeking volunteers aged between 50−70 years who are generally healthy to help them investigate how the brain controls how we move, for example, getting up from a chair or picking up a light object. The study will help understand how the brain changes as we get older and how we can keep the brain healthy in later life. Note that the study does not involve any strenuous exercise.

Volunteers will have their movements assessed by a neurologist and neuroscientist, and have images of their brain collected using a safe and non-invasive ultrasound method, and potentially complete a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. The study involves 1 to 3 study appointments at Camperdown or Randwick (each appointment lasts 2 to 4 hours).

Volunteers will be reimbursed for associated parking or public transport costs and refreshments will be provided. If you wish to be involved or would like further information, please contact the corresponding study coordinators.

Where: Building K, Level 4 94-100 Mallett Street Camperdown, 2050 NSW
