Research Study on Daily Experience of Emotion and Memory

Are you aged 60 years of age or older?

Are you interested in taking part in research?

The University of Exeter is conducting a research study to better understand the factors that affect emotional responses to everyday memory lapses.  They are currently looking for participants, so if this sounds interesting, they would love to hear from you.  For your information:

You are eligible to take part in this study if you:

-          Are aged 60 years or over

-          Have personal experience of memory lapses (however infrequent)

Unfortunately, you cannot take part in this study if you:

-          Have an uncorrected hearing or visual impairment that affects your ability to hear or read instructions.

-          Have a diagnosis of dementia (e.g., Alzheimer’s disease) or Mild Cognitive Impairment

-          Are currently seeking professional help or assessment for memory problems

-          Have experienced stroke or head injury, or have a diagnosis of learning disability.

What does taking part involve?

Participation involves completing one 20-minute test consisting of a number of short tasks, e.g. remembering an address and copying a drawing, and a questionnaire.  This will take place at the University of Exeter; however, it may be possible to meet at a location more convenient to you if this is difficult.  In total, participation in the study should take no more than one hour.  You will be invited to be entered into a prize draw to win one of five £50 Love2shop vouchers to thank you for your participation in the study.

If you would like more information about the study or are interested in taking part, please contact:
