Researchers at the University of Tasmania are seeking participants for a laboratory study.

We are seeking individuals who use cannabis one or more day a week and have done so for two or more years. Participants must be aged 18-40, right handed, English-speaking, and be relatively healthy with no other illicit substance use or mental or physical health conditions. The lab study is a single session that takes about 2 hours to complete and involves tests of mental skills (e.g., memory), two urine samples, and 20-minutes of non-invasive brain stimulation with a method called transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), which is typically well-tolerated and considered safe.

Participants will receive a $30 Coles/Myer gift voucher for kindly volunteering their time.
