Frequently asked Questions:


What will I be doing?

At the DCP Lab we collect different kinds of information. Our studies usually involve a variety of things including MRI scans, questionnaires, computer games or paper and pencil tasks.

None of our tasks are harmful. You will be informed of the tasks that you will be exposed to before you decide if you would like to participate. Furthermore, if you are at all uncomfortable during any part of the experiment you are free to stop.


Will I be compensated?

You will receive compensation for your participation (at least £7.50/hour). We will always reimburse reasonable travel expenses. We are located in central London, close to Euston, Russell Square and Euston Square stations (see here on how to find us).


Are MRI scans safe?

There are no known or foreseeable risks or side effects associated with MRI scanning procedures. Only individuals who have electrically, magnetically or mechanically activated implants, or metal in or on their bodies are at risk, because the MRI machine makes use of a large magnet to take the images. Therefore, we screen all potential participants to ensure that they are safe to have an MRI and carefully remove all metal from eligible participants before they are approved to enter the MRI environment. We will provide more detailed information about MRI scanning if you come in to participate.

All of the data we collect from you will be held in accordance with the Data Protection Act (1998) and will be kept strictly confidential. We never report data from a single individual, but instead look at data from groups of individuals, so that no-one can be identified.
