Centre for Human Psychopharmacology

Memory and Attention Supplement Trial (MAST)

Researchers at the Centre for Human Psychopharmacology are looking for adults who would like to take part in a clinical trial of a B-vitamin and herbal supplement. In previous trials of supplements with similar doses of B vitamins, our laboratory have found improvements in tasks involving memory. Further research is currently needed regarding whether this ongoing combination is effective in improving memory and attention. It is also unknown how an individual’s dietary habits may influence the effectiveness of supplementation.

The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of 12 weeks supplementation on cognitive function and mood. We are looking for healthy participants aged 40 and 65 years to take part in this study.

You may be eligible for this study if you*:

  • are aged between 40 and 65 years
  • are in good general health
  • are a non-smoker
  • have internet access in your home

* Please note there are additional criteria to participate in the study.

What does participation involve?

Participation in this study will involve attending the Centre for Human Psychopharmacology at Swinburne University of Technology in Hawthorn for three separate testing sessions over a 12-week period. All testing occurs within business hours Monday to Friday. The first session will take approximately 1-2 hours, while the second and third visits will take 3-4 hours.

There is an optional part of the study which involves brain imaging. You will also be asked to complete a series of online questionnaires in the home, twice a week during your participation in the study.

You will be compensated for your time.
