Memory and Epilepsy
: Patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (18+ years) male/female, right-handed -- $60, 1 hour + follow-up via telephone (this experiment includes fMRI)

This study investigates the ability to remember words and to retrieve personal memories and includes two tasks in the MRI scanner. In the first task, you are asked to retrieve memories from your personal past and relive them in your mind. In the second task, you see a number of words and are asked to remember as many as possible because we will ask you about them immediately after you have seen them, 24 hours and 7 days later. The two follow-up recall sessions are conducted via telephone. This experiment investigates patients suffering from temporal lobe epilepsy. Participants will be reimbursed $60.


Memory Retrieval in the Brain
: Healthy adults (40-55 years) male/female, right-handed -- $60, 1 hour + follow-up via telephone (this experiment includes fMRI)

This study investigates the ability to remember words and to retrieve personal memories and includes two tasks in the MRI scanner. In the first task, you are asked to retrieve memories from your personal past and relive them in your mind. In the second task, you see a number of words and are asked to remember as many as possible because we will ask you about them immediately after you have seen them, 24 hours and 7 days later. The two follow-up recall sessions are conducted via telephone. Participants will be reimbursed $60.
 

Word and Gesture Production in Young and Older Adults
: Healthy adults (20-35 or 60-75 years) male/female, -- $30, 1.5 hour

This study investigates the semantic processes when we speak and gesture. For this reason, you can only participate if English is your first language, i.e., if you have learned English before the age of 3 but no other language during that time. You will complete a number of tasks, in which you will produce words and gestures while we measure your response times. In addition, you will fill out a number of questionnaires. This experiment does not include brain imaging. Participants will be reimbursed $30.

All testing will take place at the Centre for Advanced Imaging on the St-Lucia campus of UQ (Building 57, for a map with directions, click here).
