We are looking for participants for a research study into the effects of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) on response learning over multiple experimental sessions.
The study involves doing computerised tests of visual detection or recognition while undergoing TMS. TMS is a non-invasive brain stimulation technique which creates interference with neural activity in a small area of the brain. By observing the effects this has on your performance over multiple sessions, we can gain a better understanding of the role played by that region of the brain in visual processing and motor preparation.
There are a total of four experimental sessions – the first session is 90 minutes, the second session 30 minutes, the third session 30 minutes and the final session 90 minutes. You will be reimbursed for the time involved.
Ethics approval number: 2016/920
You may be eligible to participate in this study if:
A questionnaire will be sent after initial contact is made to confirm that you are eligible to receive TMS.
If you are interested in assisting with this important and exciting area of research, please email the study facilitator, Nahian Chowdhury, to arrange an appointment or get more information.
