Memory and Alcohol use

Take part in our study

We are inviting participants to take part in this study of memory and alcohol use. We need individuals who are non-alcohol dependent, as we would like to compare their results to people undergoing treatment for alcohol dependence. Our aim is to identify mental processes linked to alcohol dependence, and recovery/relapse.

You will only need to visit the LJMU Byrom Street campus (or another accessible public space, such as a library) once for no more than 55 minutes. In appreciation of your time, you will receive a £10 shopping voucher.

We are looking for male and female subjects to take part in this study, who meet this criteria:

  • Be aged 18+
  • Have no current or previous diagnosis of alcohol dependence
  • Speak English as first language
  • Not have any current diagnosis of another substance use disorder
  • Not have used cocaine in the last month
  • Not be pregnant
  • Not have any learning disabilities
  • Not have a condition that affects feeling in their dominant hand
  • Not have a neurological impairment
  • Not be severely malnourished
  • Not have liver or kidney disease
  • Not have respiratory problems
  • Not be experiencing homelessness (with the exception of those staying in hostels)
