Healthy volunteers aged 18-40 are needed for a project studying the effects of a single dose of oral lamotrigine, a commonly prescribed medication for epilepsy and bipolar depression, on brain activity using brain imaging technology.

The study would involve 2 visits lasting approximately 1 and 5 hours, respectively. We are unfortunately unable to include volunteers with a history of a psychiatric disorder such as depression or anxiety in the study.

***Please note the 5 hour visit can only take place in July and August due to limited scanning slots***


Time and reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed.

Date required

This study is currently ongoing and will end in September 2018.
