Volunteers needed for study into Parkinson's Disease
Dr Valerie Bonnelle of the Oxford Cognitive Neuropsychology Centre at the Department of Experimental Psychology in South Parks Road (OX1 3UD) is currently seeking healthy older adults to participate as a control group in an investigation of cognitive function in patients with Parkinson's Disease. The experiment involves a computer game, and filling in some questionnaires asking about your mood and lifestyle, and lasts 90 minutes. Volunteers will be paid £10 to compensate for their time. The experiment can be carried out at the department, or at your place, or in some quiet public place if more convenient. These psychology tests will contribute to building a dataset of healthy older adults that will be used as a control group to investigate cognitive function in patients with Parkinson's disease. If you would like to take part, please email Valerie Bonnelle or telephone 01865 618635.
