Researchers at The Westmead Institute for Medical Research have been investigating how the brain responds during episodes of psychosis.

But the team needs people with a mental illness to participate as healthy controls to compare against our clinical participants who have schizophrenia.

The researchers are measuring the brain’s electrical activity – also known as an electroencephalogram or EEG.

The team records this by putting a cap with sensors on your head – it’s not painful at all but does put some gel into your hair!

You will be invited to come to The Westmead Institute for Medical Research for a clinical interview and assessment, and take an EEG measurement.

You will be reimbursed for reasonable travel expenses.

If you are interested in taking part, please email your preferred contact details to the email address below or contact the investigator on the telephone number listed. The investigator will then explain the study to you in detail.
