Centre for Human Psychopharmacology

Micronutrient formulation and cognitive function

Researchers at the Centre for Human Psychopharmacology are looking for people who would like to take part in a study investigating the effects of a micronutrient formulation on memory, cognitive function and mood. The study is a three-month trial involving three in-person visits to Swinburne University, Hawthorn campus, as well as three online sessions (in your own home).

You may be eligible to participate if:

  • You are aged between 50 and 75 years
  • You are in good general health
  • You have not been diagnosed with dementia or depression/anxiety/other psychiatric disorders
  • You are fluent in written and spoken English
  • You are a non-smoker
  • You do not have any gastrointestinal or cardiovascular disorders
  • You are willing to provide blood samples at each testing visit

What does participation involve?

Participation in the study will involve attending the Centre for Human Psychopharmacology at Swinburne University in Hawthorn on three separate occasions over a three-month period; completing some questionnaires and cognitive tasks in your own home, on three occasions; and taking a micronutrient formulation (or placebo) twice daily during this period. Testing sessions will take between 1.5 and 5 hours (you will be provided with a light meal at each visit).

There is also an optional brain-imaging component to this study. Participants who are interested and eligible for this component will be required to spend up to an additional 1.5 hours at each on-site testing visit.

You will be reimbursed for completing this study to cover your time and travel expenses.
