Wiltshire study picture 1

Researchers at the Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford are seeking volunteers for a transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) study.


The purpose of this study is to examine how non-invasive stimulation of different brain areas affects learning to articulate difficult speech sequences, e.g. tongue twisters.

This study involves one visit to the Department of Experimental Psychology in Oxford. The session involves brain stimulation (tDCS) and will take no more than 2 hours. We will also stimulate your brain using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), which tells us how effective the tDCS has been. Participants are required to repeat tongue twisters.

Volunteers will be reimbursed for their time.


If you are interested in participating in this study and/or would like further information, please contact Charlie Wiltshire by emailing
