FINAL CALL! Control participants needed: fMRI study on voice-hearing (July 2016, central London)

In July we will be running our final MRI sessions for our study of voice-hearing in people without need for care (sometimes known as non-clinical voice-hearers). For the study we have had loads of great support from people with and without experience of hearing voices – thank you to all those who have volunteered their time or helped spread the word. We now only need 3 or 4 ‘control’ participants to provide the final matches for our voice-hearer group.
