Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) study

Download the flyer.

The Motor Rehabilitation and Learning Lab is actively recruiting participants for a transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) study — participants will be paid $15 per visit to Bulldog Hall on the Tempe campus.

The purpose of this study is to test the influence of neurostimulation on our cognitive ability and our ability to learn a motor task. You may be tested on computer-based tasks in addition to having safe and non-invasive electrical brain stimulation for 20 minutes (if you are assigned to a stimulation group), and practicing a motor task. The first session will take 1–1.5 hours and the second session, if assigned, will take 15 minutes.
