Step 1: Request an Account
- Once you have completed the ‘Request an Account’ form the online system will send you an email with your login and password details.
- Login to the system using these details (you will then have the option to change your password to something which is more memorable to you).
- You will be asked to acknowledge our Human Subject Policy.
Step 2: Complete the pre-screening questionnaire
- To enable us to offer you suitable studies we need to collect some information from you.
- You will be asked to answer a pre-screening questionnaire which will include questions relating to your age, language, handedness etc.
- You are not obliged to answer any of these questions but the more information you can provide will enable us to match you to more studies.
By completing the questionnaire you are agreeing that the data you have entered can be stored on a computer and shared with the researchers at the Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit. All data submitted is processed in accordance with the Data Protection Act.
Step 3: Wait for your account to be activated
- Unfortunately we do have to activate your account and this will take 24 hours.
- Please logon again after 24 hours and the currently available studies should be visible to you.
- Study descriptions will be available to you and as with all our experiments you can choose whether or not to take part.
- You will also see a pre-screening questionnaire for imaging studies and you should complete this if you are interested in participating in a fMRI scan.
The Medical Research Council sponsors our research. For us to make real scientific progress it is vital that researchers share their knowledge. This means that the results of our research need to be published in scientific journals, and the data we collect has to be made available to the scientific community. However, we will never publish or pass on any data that can be associated with any specific individual. Names will never be supplied to outside bodies without your written consent. Similarly names will not be passed on to researchers within the CBU who are not directly involved in the study that the data is originally collected for, unless we have your written consent. The provisions of the Data Protection Act cover all the information we keep. This ensures that all personal information will be kept secure.
