Volunteers Needed for Parkinson’s Disease Study

We are looking for individuals aged 50-75 who have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in the last 6 years, to take part in a research study assessing the effects of their usual medication on learning and memory.

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.

If you are interested and would like more information, please contact us.
Time and travel expenses will be reimbursed.
