"Investigating the effects of task type and amount of practice and consolidation of performance on a serial reaction time task (SSRT)" (Ethics Ref: R30822/RE001)

VOLUNTEERS WANTED FOR MOTOR LEARNING, TES, TMS STUDY

We are looking for volunteers to participate in a study investigating how transcranial electrical stimulation (tES) affects our ability to learn and remember new motor tasks. We would want you to be involved in the study on up to 4 days, each around a week apart. On each day of the study you would be asked to participate in one session (lasting around 2 hours).

In the sessions you will learn a new motor task, while receiving tES and your brain activity will be recorded using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).

We need volunteers between 18 and 35 years old, who do not play a musical instrument to a high level (e.g. to grade 6 or above and still taking part in regular practice). You must be in good health and without a history of epilepsy or any other disease affecting the brain or spinal cord. If you are pregnant you should not volunteer.

Sessions will take place at the John Radcliffe or Warneford Hospital. You will be remunerated for you time.
