VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR PARKINSON’S DISEASE STUDY
If you express interest, you will be invited to come to the Department of Psychiatry at the Warneford Hospital for 3 study sessions. The first would be an initial screening visit to assess your eligibility to take part. If eligible, you would be invited for a further 2 sessions. One would be shortly after you have taken your usual medication, and the other would be conducted when you are in an ‘off-medication state. This would involve missing/delaying your usual medication for a few hours. Each session would take 2-3 hours of your time and will involve completing a set of computer-based tasks. These sessions would be scheduled approx. 2-3 weeks apart.
