I’m currently involved with a research group investigating the neural basis of hypnosis and dissociative disorders and, if you live in London, we’d like to invite you to take part in our research.
Dissociative disorders are where people lose abilities that they normally have, such as limb movement, in the absence of underlying neurological illness.
However, for this stage of the research we’re inviting healthy participants to complete some short questionnaires and take a short test that measures how hypnotisable you are.
This will take place with group of other people and everyone gets an ¬£8 volunteer fee for their time.
2pm, Saturday 10th November
2pm, Saturday 17th November
2pm, Saturday 24th November
After taking part we may invite you to participate in further parts of the study at another time (such as a brain scan or some measures of memory or attention) but you are under no obligation to do so.
Each part is separate, and, if you are invited, volunteering for one part doesn’t mean you have to take part in any others.
Like all good scientific research, the study has been fully reviewed and approved by the local research ethics committee.
If you’re interested in finding out more, there’s further information on our study webpage where you can also contact me, ask questions, get sent the full information sheet, or volunteer for one of the sessions.
