1. EVENTS: CU Travel Society Talk, CUSO Concert, Science Week Ceilidh


Fancy getting paid to travel? Sounds like the dream job. Guidebook writing is often seen as a glamorous profession, with writers gallivanting around the globe visiting major sights, writing about local cuisine and reviewing the odd dune buggy ride. But guidebook writing has its challenges.

At our March 11th event, a panel of three travel guide writers/editors (Kiki, Lottie and Rebecca - read more about them on the FB event page!!) will bring us to the world of travel and guidebook writing, shedding light on what it’s really all about.

2. STUDIES: Brain Stimulation Study


Participants needed for brain stimulation study!

Our lab at the Department of Psychology at the University of Cambridge is currently looking for participants in psychological research. The purpose of this study is to examine the brain’s mechanisms for perception.

If you are interested and would like more information, please contact Reuben Rideaux via email:

This study will include six sessions (each lasting between 60 to 90 minutes) that will take place over separate days. All sessions will involve observing images on a screen while making responses by pressing buttons. In three of the sessions will receive transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) while performing the task. This procedure is a safe, non-invasive technique that has no known medium or long-term risks and has been used for more than 15 years. 

All sessions will take place in the Department of Psychology (Downing Site, CB2 3EB).You will be compensated £7.5 an hour.

To be eligible to participate, you should have normal or corrected-to-normal vision without major visual impairments. If you have corrected-to-normal vision, you must be comfortable wearing contact lenses for the duration of each session. During the experiment, you have the right to withdraw from the study at any time and you will be entitled to any agreed payment up to the point where you withdraw.
