Investigating the effects of cortisol on the storage of emotional memory

11 August 2019

You would be asked to come to UCL on a single occasion. As part of the study you watch a ‘stressful film’, take hydrocortisone or placebo and complete some questionnaires and computer tasks. You should be aware that the film contains graphic scenes including sexual and interpersonal violence which some people might find distressing. You will need to be able to fill in online diaries for one week after your session and then an online questionnaire so you must have reliable daily internet access
