11. Over 65?
Vanessa Gray, a club member, is completing her Uni. of Otago medical psychology PhD and is seeking just a few more 'over 65s' as participants in her research. Vanessa talked to this at our last club night and passed on her thanks to those who indicated interest, and to those already part of the study.
Vanessa will send more detailed information to those interested.
"Changes in memory and thinking are common in ageing. Research also suggests that ageing may impact how people think about emotions. This study will measure memory and emotion processing in people aged 45-65 and compare this with people over 65.
Participants need to be over the age of 65 and in good health. To take part you must not have suffered from any major mental illness, or had a brain injury or significant illness likely to interfere with cognitive testing. We will check with you about these things beforehand.
The testing process will take approximately two hours. A $50 Westfield voucher will be given at completion.
If so contact email@example.com who has asked if any MG owners might be interested. Abingdon, Oxfordshire - from 1929 the home of MG.

The MG Car Club Canterbury Centre has its roots in the original 'MG Car Club of New Zealand', formed in 1952 when many of the country's motorsport enthusiasts drove our favourite marque in the shape of TCs, TAs, Ps and Js.
From those early beginnings the NZ Club has devolved into four major Centres, two in the North Island and two in the South. Each of these Centres is autonomous, organising competitive and social events for members within its regions. Like the 'Crusaders' our region includes Nelson, Marlborough and the West Coast as well as Canterbury. There are also a range of inter-Centre and national activities you are able to enjoy. And of course, if you are visiting another region you will be most welcome to participate in any of their events, competitive or social.
Like most MG Clubs around the world we are affiliated to the MGCC UK ensuring access to badging, logos and so on. We also maintain regular contact with a number of Centres in NZ, Australia, the US and the UK to help ensure we offer the best possible benefits and MG enjoyment for all of our members.
For more detail of what we do, please visit the 'About Us' section.
