Children and adolescents wanted to take part in brain research

Children and adolescents wanted for brain and behaviour study about numbers

Can you help us find out how the brain processes numbers throughout life?

We are looking for children and young people to take part in our research to help us understand the development of the brain and numeracy skills.

We are currently recruiting children aged 6, 10 and 14 years, as well as A-Level students in their first term of studies (year 12). Children must be right-handed, fluent English speakers, and without any known (or suspected) learning or developmental difficulty.

The study involves a safe brain scan using a Magnetic Resonance Scanner (1 ½ hours) and several Maths puzzles and games (3 hours). We will repeat these sessions in 18 or 24 months’ time (depending on their stage of education).

All participants receive a voucher to say thank you for taking part. Reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed. We also hope that the experience of being involved in research will be interesting and fun for you.
