About Aarhus Brain Project

ECG Logomicahweb.png

Aarhus Brain Project examines the interaction between our brain, body and mental health. More specifically, we want to examine the links between how well people make decisions, how well they know themselves, and what happens inside their body (for example, their heart rate or breathing movements). These studies will provide us with important knowledge about how the brain and body interact and affect our psychological well-being. In the future, we hope to be able to use this knowledge to better diagnose and treat mental illness.

By participating in this project, you will help answer the following questions:


How does the brain create gut feelings ?

How do gut feelings help shape our cognitive and emotional selves?

What do individual patterns of stomach sensations in the brain tell us about well-being and mental health?

To participate in the project, you will first complete a short questionnaire which we will use to check if you are eligible for a brain scan. You can sign up for the study and begin the survey by clicking here. If you are eligible, you will have the opportunity to participate in the study at Aarhus University Hospital, where you will have one brain scan (MRI) and complete some cognitive tests on a computer. You will also have the opportunity to complete some games and surveys from home, using your mobile phone and personal computer. As compensation for your time, you will receive up to 1700 DKK, depending on how much of the project you complete. Your consent to participate is completely voluntary, you may withdraw from the project at any time, and your data will be kept completely secure and anonymous.
