Do you have children aged 8-10? 

This study is investigating the benefits of blueberry consumption on vascular and cognitive function.

They will investigate these effects with the use of cognitive tasks on a computer, and various non-invasive ultrasound techniques to look at cardiovascular health. It is believed that plant compounds known as polyphenols found in berries, may act as protective agents against cardiovascular diseases by increasing the elasticity of the arteries.

Additionally, blueberries have previously been shown to increase cognitive function. In this study, we want to investigate whether blueberries can increase cognitive performance in different age groups and whether this is mediated by increases in cerebral blood flow and improvements in vascular health.  A financial compensation of £75 will be provided.
