Probing the neural mechanisms of decisions with combined Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and Electrophysiological recordings (EEG)
We are currently running a study investigating how the brain is organised, and how it performs skills such as thinking and motor planning. TMS is a technique that allows us to stimulate the brain by rapid switching of a magnetic field in a coil placed over the head. Participants may experience some discomfort during TMS. By using this technique, we hope to find out how different brain regions contribute to the decision making and learning.
This study involves two or three visits to the Oxford Centre of Human Brain Activity (OHBA) at the Warneford Hospital in Oxford. One or two visits will involve magnetic resonance scanning (MRI, lasting less than 90 minutes).
We are looking for participants between 18 and 45 years old, right handed, with no history of fainting, or mental illness and no experience of epilepsy. Volunteers will be reimbursed for their time taken in all sessions.
