Western University's Cognitive Neuroscience Research Registry

Many research groups at Western study cognitive functions like learning, memory, perception, attention and language in children and adults. These studies teach us how the brain works. They provide crucial information that may allow researchers to develop novel therapies for brain and mental disorders, as well as more sensitive tests so disorders can be identified and treated sooner.

Volunteers are key partners in this research: without you, this essential work can’t happen. The purpose of OurBrainsCAN is to establish a registry of potential participants for health-related research at Western University. Our brains can work together to understand how we learn, think, move and communicate in order to reduce the burden of brain disorders.

Your privacy is important to us

OurBrainsCAN stores its data in a secure database. Any information that you choose to provide will be kept private and confidential.

We don't do anything without your consent

OurBrainsCAN is a secure, password-protected registry. All the information that you choose to share will be kept private and confidential with access limited to cognitive neuroscience researchers affiliated with BrainsCAN. When you are invited to participate in a research study, you will be given a full description of what your involvement would entail. You are, of course, free to turn down any request. You can also contact us at any time to change your preferences (e.g. frequency of invitations) or to delete your information from our registry.
