Participants wanted for brain stimulation study
The role of the motor cortex and cerebellum in sensorimotor learning of speech
Researchers at the Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford are seeking volunteers who are native English speakers for a Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) study. Volunteers should be right handed, aged 18-40 years, with normal hearing and speech.
We are interested in understanding how the brain produces speech. We can investigate this by using Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), which is a way of stimulating the brain noninvasively. In this experiment, we will use TMS to investigate the role of different brain areas in speech production.
This study includes one visit to the Department of Experimental Psychology (Anna Watts Building, Radcliffe Observatory Quarter, OX2 6GG) in Oxford. The visit takes no more than two hours. Volunteers will be reimbursed for their time.
