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 TMS in combination with EEG we hope to find out different brain regions contributing to decision making and learning.
This study includes one visit to the Oxford Centre for Clinical Magnetic Resonance Research (OCMR - 30 minutes) where a brain scan is obtained and two visit to the Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity (OHBA - less than 3 hours). 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.
