Amy Jenkins is conducting research to improve understanding of subjective changes in memory and cognition. Although such changes are a normal part of ageing, some people experience more concern about such changes than others. This study wants to determine whether perceived changes in memory, cognition, and thinking skills are accompanied by changes in other aspects of brain function such as visual-attention and in other aspects of everyday life, such as mood.

Participants who take part will be asked a number of different questions about factors such as age, occupation, educational level, quality of life, personality, and mood. They will then be asked to complete some tasks measuring things like visual-attention, memory, and orientation. The tests will altogether take around two hours to complete. All the data collected will be anonymous and confidential, and will only be used for research purposes. To find out more about the study please contact Amy on either 07936745037, 643775@swansea.ac.uk, or visit http://amyjenk.weebly.com/current-studies.html

I am a third year Psychology student at Swansea University. I am currently looking for participants for my final year research project, which aims to explore the experiences of people with serious/prolonged health-related conditions, and how these experiences may be linked with their perceptions of themselves and their health. People taking part will be asked to talk about their experiences in a one-to-one interview, lasting for approximately 45 to 60 minutes.

Those who wish to take part are required to be between 18 and 25 years of age, and to have a relatively serious/prolonged health condition. Participants will be rewarded with £10, (or 1 hour subject pool credits for university students). If you are interested in assisting in this research and would like to know more, please feel free to contact me on 711363@swansea.ac.uk
