We are interested in understanding how the brain controls movement. We can investigate this by using non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS), a very common and safe technique that is painless to most participants. In addition, by combining NIBS with brain MRI scans and EEG, we aim to gain more insights into the brain’s response to stimulation, and how we can help to improve motor function in patients with neurological disease.

MRI scans and EEG are safe and do not involve any needles or injections. You will be asked questions about your medical history to check your suitability for an MRI scan and for NIBS.


The study will involve up to 3 sessions of each 2.5 hours (separated by at least one week) at the WIN Centre, John Radcliffe Hospital. You will be reimbursed for your time.

Who are we looking for? Healthy volunteers aged 18-30 years, right handed, who are safe to go in an MRI scanner (metallic implants require checking), without a history of epilepsy or any other disease affecting the brain or spinal cord, and are not pregnant.
