Looking for volunteers

Have you been experiencing mood swings? Have you recently engaged in risky behaviour? Have you been so hyper that you got into trouble? If so, COMET is the study for you!

The COMET (“Cognition and Mood Evolution across Time”) study is an exciting new research project which aims to explore mood instability and cognitive function in individuals who show symptoms of mood instability, and compares this to individuals who have never experienced problematic moods.

We explore mood instability and cognitive function using daily app-based games presented on an iPad, as well as fMRI (functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging) and MEG (Magnetoencephalography) neuroimaging techniques. We also use modern “wearable” technologies that tell us about an individual’s activity patterns and physical state.
