When completing a Participant Information Sheet, please edit accordingly in relation to your specific study (see sections marked in blue in the documents) and ensure that the version number appears in the top right corner.

Multi-Modal Studies

For studies that use MRI to inform/guide EEG, MEG or TMS experiments, two separate proposals should be submitted (with two separate information and consent forms) as the studies are carried out on separate dates and have different requirements.
