The study takes about two and a half hours. No drugs are involved. Our longer-term objective is to see how acute stress interacts with a person’s genes, and with medication, to affect attention and memory. However, first we need to decide how best to induce stress in the laboratory, and see how the body responds to it


We are looking for

healthy men, aged 18 to 40, to assess how your body responds to an acute stressful situation in either a virtual reality environment or in a laboratory setting, and how this influences your performance on cognitive computer tasks.
