Women's Health Research Study

Started Monday, February 28, 2022

OU HSC, Norman Campus

We're looking for women between the ages 40 and 65 to help us better understand women's brain health. If you're not in this age range, but know someone who is, please pass this along!


The Department of Psychology at the University of Oklahoma is recruiting participants for a study of how varying levels of iron might affect brain health, memory, and cognitive abilities of women before, during, and after menopause. The study involves a small set of questionnaires, a small blood draw, a scan of your brain’s structure, and simple tests of memory and cognitive performance. In addition, your brain activity will be measured while performing the memory and cognitive tests, all at no expense to you. We're looking for women between the ages 40 and 65 to help us add to the knowledge of women's brain health in particular. Here are the details:


If you are eligible, you will be asked to come to the OU Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City for a simple blood draw. You will then get an MRI scan at OU HSC, which will take about 30 minutes. Finally, you will come to the OU Norman Campus to complete the cognitive performance tests with an EEG. After completing the study, you will be compensated with a total of $125 in Amazon gift cards. Our schedule is flexible, catering to your convenience to be available before and after the workday, as well as the weekend.


If you are interested in participating, please follow this link to fill out a short questionnaire:




In accordance with local and CDC guidelines, we are taking all possible steps to make your participation safe. Our staff will be wearing personal protective equipment during the testing, including masks, and will have passed a screening questionnaire and had their temperature taken the day of your testing session. We will require that you as a participant also pass a screening questionnaire, where we will take your temperature before you enter the building, and we will require you to wear a mask at all times during the study. There will only be two other people present during your testing session, and our testing facilities will be sanitized before and after your testing session. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
