Do you have Parkinson’s, Essential Tremor or a Brain Pacemaker and would like to help?

We are investigating how tremor, slowness and stiffness and difficulty learning new motor skills arise.

Our studies involve doing very simple tasks such as using a joystick, pressing buttons in response to visual cues presented on a computer screen, or, if you have a tremor, simply recording the position of your hands in space.  This will take at the most a total of two hours, with breaks throughout.

We also want to study the effects of non-invasive brain stimulation on such tasks.  The stimulation is painless and has no lasting effects.  Although this study will not be of any direct benefit to volunteers, we hope that it might allow us to treat patients with your condition more effectively in the future.  This research will not interfere with your medical treatment in any way and is completely harmless.

We are looking for people with Parkinson’s, Essential Tremor or a Brain Pacemaker to take part in our studies. If you would like to take part in our study, or would like more information, please contact us on email: savita.anderson@pharm.ox.ac.uk or by phone: 01865 572482.
