Volunteer

Our active research programme requires a steady stream of volunteers willing to help. Studies vary in duration, but are typically 1-3 hours, and may involve a range of non-invasive techniques such as EEG (electroencephalogram), EMG (electromyography) recording, magnetic brain stimulation, peripheral nerve stimulation, and performance of instrumented tasks. All procedures are non-invasive and safe - most people find participating interesting and fun!

On-going studies:

Upper limb rehabilitation following stroke or spinal cord injury (SCI) - We are currently recruiting volunteers with upper limb weakness following stroke or SCI to take part in a rehabilitation study.
