We are looking for healthy volunteers to improve our understanding of the brain mechanisms of decision making and action initiation. We are interested to know how we decide 'whether' and 'when' to initiate an action.

You would be asked to lie still in a 7T MRI scanner and perform some simple tasks. MRI is a type of brain imaging method that allow us to see how the brain is organised and processes information. This scan is safe and does not involve any needles or injections.

The session would take max 2 hours including both the instruction part outside the scanner and the task during the scanner. The scanner is located at the FMRIB Centre at the John Radcliffe Hospital. You will be reimbursed with money for your time.

Who are we looking for?  Healthy fluent English-speaking men or women over 18 years who are right-handed and 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 Nima Khalighinejad in the Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford, by email
