What is the RSPP?

The Ryerson Senior Participant Pool (RSPP) is a database of healthy adult volunteers over the age of 60. This database facilitates recruitment of research participants across laboratories in the Department of Psychology at Ryerson University who conduct psychological research on various aspects of aging (e.g., memory).

How does it work?

As a member of the RSPP, you will receive occasional phone calls inviting you to participate in a study. Studies typically consist of computer and paper-and-pencil tasks, and occasionally involve brain imaging (e.g., fMRI). If the study sounds interesting, you can schedule a date to participate over the phone. You can always decline to participate if the study does not sound like something you would like to do.

Where does it take place?

Most studies are conducted at Ryerson's Psychology and Research Training Centre at 105 Bond Street, South Bond Building (SBB), Toronto, two blocks east of the Yonge and Dundas intersection. The closest subway station is Dundas Station. Limited paid parking is available on Bond Street.
