Volunteers needed for speech research
Researchers at the Department of Experimental Psychology University of Oxford are seeking healthy fluent speaking male participants for a study investigating stuttering. Volunteers should be male, aged 18-45 years, and native English speakers. You will be asked questions about your medical history to check your suitability for an MRI scan and brain stimulation.
The study involves MRI scanning of the brain and vocal tract, and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), which will take place during one or two visits to the OHBA Centre at the Warneford Hospital in Oxford. MRI gives very detailed pictures of structure and function. TMS is used here to measure the excitability of the brain areas involved in speech production. These methods are non-invasive and do not involve ionising radiation. We will reimburse volunteers for their time and cover reasonable travel expenses.
If you are interested in participating in this study and/or would like further information, please contact the Speech and Brain Research Group on firstname.lastname@example.org
