Help Advance USC Research as a Healthy Minds Volunteer

Last updated 12/03/2021

Would you like to help USC researchers understand how we can maintain healthy minds and bodies across our lifespan? Join the Healthy Minds Volunteer Corps! If you sign up as a volunteer, USC research labs can contact you about participating in studies investigating how aging affects vision, decision making, memory, emotional health, and physical health. Study participation typically involves completing cognitive tasks and questionnaires, but a few also use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to record brain activity while people complete cognitive tasks.

Your involvement in research studies has the potential to improve the lives of older adults throughout the world. For more information about the researchers, current projects, and to register as a volunteer, visit
