Research at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit is dependent on the goodwill of members of the public who volunteer to take part in our studies of attention, emotion, memory and language. Our researchers need volunteers to help them test their theories about the functioning of the mind and brain in healthy adults and in people with brain injury or disease. We are always in need of new volunteers, aged 16+, so please follow the links below if you are able to help us.
