When is it: We can arrange a suitable time   (includes evenings and weekend times)

Study information:
This research aims to investigate thinking abilities in people with Multiple Sclerosis (a physical health condition involving the central nervous system). We are using a relatively new task (The Hotel Task) which assesses our ability  to plan, organise and multi-task. We are also using some tasks that are frequently used to assess these and other thinking abilities in people with Multiple Sclerosis at present.

We are recruiting healthy adults, so that we can compare how people with Multiple Sclerosis do compared to healthy people without multiple sclerosis. The research involves carrying out some tasks and completing some questionnaires with the researcher. This will take up to two hours in total (on average it takes 90 minutes). The study involves meeting the researcher once only. Participants will be reimbursed £10 for their time. If you are interested in taking part, you may have to answer some questions over the phone first, to ensure you are suitable to take part (this is because we try to make sure the two groups are as similar as possible).
