As a research participant at Neuroscience Research Australia, you will play a critical role in helping us advance the treatment and understanding of many diseases and conditions. By donating your time, you will help us provide excellence in the care of others.
Although our research focuses on understanding disorders of the brain and nervous system, we also need healthy participants over the age of 18 years. Healthy participants are essential to our research as a comparison group to measure the changes in affected individuals.

We will ask you participate in a research project on average every other year. Occasionally, we may ask you to participate more often, but never more than three times per year. Participation is always entirely voluntary on each occasion.

In each instance, we will provide you with full details of the proposed study and ask for your written consent prior to participation. In most studies, you may be eligible for reimbursement of any expenses you may incur (e.g. parking or travel-related costs).
