The Medical Research Council Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit  investigates fundamental human cognitive processes such as attention, language, memory and emotion.  Our experiments explore how these change throughout the lifespan and how they become disrupted in disease and disorder.  Our Unit is based at Chaucer Road situated off Trumpington Road in Cambridge.  We need volunteers of all ages to participate in our tests which are either computer based, or in an MRI or MEG scanner.  You can sign up for studies here: and read about our work here: or alternatively contact the Panel Office on 01223 273715 or email [email protected]
