Seeking Volunteers for a Study of Exercise and Brain Health

Would you like to participate in a research project?

Researchers from the University of British Columbia and Centre for Complex Disorders are interested in measuring the effects of exercise on brain health and function. We are seeking volunteers who would like to participate in a 12-week exercise program.

We are looking for healthy volunteers:
If you are between the ages of 16 and 55, with no university education and are physically able to participate in moderate exercise, we invite you to join our study.

What the research involves:
This is a 12-week study in which you will receive a full health and fitness assessment before and after the completion of the exercise program. Certified fitness instructors will individually tailor the exercise program to your fitness level.

To explore brain function, you will have an opportunity to take part in a number of assessments of your memory and reaction speed.

If you are interested in participating, please contact us for further details at show contact info x4731, or via
