I'm conducting an experiment on memory improvement techniques, the results of which could shed light on how the two-halves of the brain interact in memory formation.

Is anyone willing to participate in the experiment? You will have to spend 5-10 minutes per day on it.

If you are, post your email address, and I will contact you when the experiment starts.

Thanks!

Is there money involved?
It does sound interesting...

What are your requirements for test subjects? I have a very poor short-term memory due to some prescription drugs I was on a few years back.

5-10 minutes per day? You actually expect me to remember to do that?

5-10 minutes per day for one week.

No money, sorry. This entire hour of your time will be used for the sake of science, possibly saving millions of people's lives. (Well, probably not, [Wink] )

The requirements are lax, but I can't recall them exactly because they are in a folder elsewhere.

The same five to ten minutes every day? If so, then I can't. If not, then I might be able to. Though someday I'd like to get the neuropsyche re-evaluation to gauge how much improvement I've made.

The 5-10 minutes have to be in the same time zone every day, namely sometime before you go to sleep and sometime after you wake up, but that's the only limitation.

Does it require being on the internet? My internet's provided by my school and thus free. It also occasionally gives out for a couple days at a time. If not, I'd love to help. [Smile]

Internet is not needed every day. Only for communication purposes at the start and end of the experiment.

Thanks for the interest! I'm still gathering participants from elsewhere, so hold on; I want to start everything together.
