Paid Participants

A 3T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner.

Are participants needed at this time?

Yes, we are currently recruiting participants for various research studies. We are seeking participants between the ages of 30 and 78 who are in good health. Individuals from all backgrounds and levels of education are invited to inquire about participation.

In addition, we are looking for individuals who have significant memory problems related to medical conditions such as stroke, encephalitis, cardiac arrest, brain injury or brain surgery. To be eligible individuals would have significant memory problems, but should not be suffering from other cognitive problems such as dementia. 

Unfortunately, we are not able to treat or diagnose mental or medical problems. If you are concerned about your health, please contact your doctor.

What does participation involve?

Participants are seen at the Human Memory Lab on the UC Davis campus. Volunteers take part in various types of studies, ranging from simple computer-based tasks to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies. The length and type of studies an individual is eligible to participate in is determined through a brief prescreening interview that can be completed over the phone.

How are participants compensated?

Participants are compensated at a rate of $15 per hour for their time in the lab and transportation.

I'm interested, how can I get involved?
