Are you interested in participating in research?

We are looking for healthy volunteers aged over 18 years to take part in our research study. The study is investigating a possible link between Cranial Diabetes Insipidus (CDI), natural levels of a hormone called Oxytocin, and emotion processing skills. In order for us to investigate this we need to see how normal healthy individuals, who don’t have CDI, respond to the same tests to see if there is a difference or not.

You will be asked to complete a series of questionnaires and tasks designed to assess emotion processing skills, and provide saliva samples for hormone analysis.

The study is held at The University Hospital of Wales (UHW). It will involve one visit to UHW, which will last approximately 90 minutes. You will be reimbursed for your inconvenience (not for your time) and for travelling expenses.

If you are interested in taking part or would like further information please contact Katie Daughters (daughterskl@cf.ac.uk) or Dr Aled Rees (reesda@cf.ac.uk).

Research Participants Sought

We are seeking participants for multiple studies at CUBRIC exploring the brain mechanisms underlying human attention and cognition.  Some studies involve magnetic stimulation and recording of brain activity as participants perform simple behavioural tasks. We are seeking to recruit healthy individuals with normal or corrected-to-normal vision.

Participants will be reimbursed £6-10 per hour, depending on the study, and most experiments involve a total of approximately 2-15 hours participation.

To find out more about the research, and your eligibility to participate, please contact Jemma Sedgmond: SedgmondJ@cardiff.ac.uk

OPEN DAY Wednesday 13th April 2016 – Restricted Parking- Main Building, Colum Drive, Queens Building

The University will be closing the Main Building car park for the duration of the University Open Day on Wednesday 13th April 2016. The car park will be used for two large reception marquees, mini bus parking and parking for visitors with mobility difficulties. Half of Main Building car park will also be closed on the 11th & 12th April to enable the marquees to be erected prior to the event. It is for this reason normal users need to be aware of the restricted parking and make alternative parking arrangements on these dates. Due to the new CARBS building on Colum Drive, there will be limited alternative parking available in the Cassim car park by the Business School. Unfortunately, we have no other alternative parking available. Apologies in advance for any inconvenience caused.
