Volunteers needed to participate in brain research

August 26, 2009

The Occupational Therapy Department is currently seeking participants for a study investigating the test - retest reliability of transcranial magnetic stimulation measures. Using electromyography (EMG), participants will have their muscle responses recorded in response to non-invasive brain stimulation.

The study includes two sessions, with each session lasting approx. 1-1.5 hours, for a total of 3 hours. A $20 stipend is available.

We are looking for healthy adults aged 18-50 years who:

  • Have no history of seizures or epilepsy
  • Are right handed
  • Are not pregnant
  • Do not have a pacemaker or other medical device in their upper body
  • Do not have a known neurological disorder, which is any disorder in the nervous system caused by abnormality, injury, or disease. For example, Parkinson’s disease, dementia, traumatic brain injury, and cerebral palsy
