Researchers are enrolling healthy volunteers for an outpatient research study to learn about the brain. A part of the study evaluates how the brain activates and represents memories. Participants will watch videos created in the “1 Second Everyday App” during a brain scan (MRI) and again during a MEG (magnetoencephalography) scan.

The study is currently enrolling eligible participants, between the ages of 18 and 65, who are in good physical health, and have at least a high school education. The study takes 4 hours and procedures include a physical exam, brain and MEG scans, and behavioral tasks.

The is conducted at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. There is no cost to participate and compensation is provided.
