We have been contacted by Dr Ali Mair of the Department of Psychology at the University of York, who is currently looking for people over the age of 60 who might be interested in participating in online research studies.

Their research aims to improve understanding of how cognitive functions such as memory and language are affected by healthy ageing, with the hope that this will aid us in developing better support and treatment for clinical groups, including people with dementia and stroke survivors.

Participation in online studies usually involves a single session that the participant can complete from the comfort of their own home. This could take the form of an online questionnaire, an interactive game, a Zoom meeting with the researcher, or some combination of the three.

Full details are emailed out in advance of each study so that individuals can make an informed decision about whether or not to participate. Participation is voluntary and there is no minimum requirement. For most of our studies (depending on funding source) we can offer compensation of around£10 per hour to participants on completion. For online studies this is usually in the form of an Amazon voucher. Payment details for each study are made clear at the time of inviting people to participate.

Interested members can find out more about taking part in these studies by filling in the online form (https://forms.gle/ozUQrKUswyZmWuxV9)
