For various research projects we are looking for healthy subjects aged 18 years and older.

The first research project is primarily looking for test candidates for hearing tasks with EEG in the magnetic resonance tomograph (3Tesla). To register, interested persons can either send an e-mail to amichals(at) or contact us by phone on 0391/6263 333 or 0152/38457177 (also by SMS). All questions will be answered in a personal conversation. The test candidates receive an expense allowance of 10 €/h.

For a memory study, we also look for test candidates between the ages of 18 and 35 years or between 50 and 85 years. We are looking for healthy volunteers without psychiatric, neurological or other severe chronic diseases. Potential subjects should be right-handed and speak German. In addition, there should be no contraindications for MRI investigation, such as pacemakers, joint prostheses or retainers.

Experiments will take three hours each on two consecutive days. On the first day, participants complete questionnaires on health and MRI eligibility as well as carry out small computer-based tests that examine attention, memory, reaction time and ability to focus. In addition, a small amount of blood will be taken.

On the second day an MRI examination, which lasts about 50 minutes, will be conducted to measure activation patterns in the brain during a simple task. This is followed by a few questionnaires and computer-based tests.

The experiment will take place by individual appointment at the Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology at Brenneckestraße 6. The participant receives feedback on his test results. In addition, the participant afterwards receives an individual MRI image of his/her brain. An expense allowance of 56 Euros will be paid. To contact the researchers please send an e-mail to altersstudie(at)
