Movement imagination Study
Researchers from the University of Oxford are looking for healthy volunteers aged 55 years or above to participate in a study investigating movement imagination. The study comprises 2 sessions (1 week apart, 2 hours each) and participants will receive £40. Harmless electrical stimulation will be performed and brain activity recorded with Electroencephalography (EEG). The long-term objective of this study is to further develop rehabilitation interventions aiming to facilitate motor recovery after stroke.
We would be very grateful for your participation!
