brain scanning study: looking for stroke survivors and adults who haven't had a stroke

We are looking for volunteers to participate in a study investigating how brain activity changes after a stroke.  We are recruiting participants who have had a stroke and people who are the same age but haven’t had a stroke. This study involves a phone call where we will talk to you about the study and ask screening questions to make sure that it is safe for you to participate. If you pass screening and agree to take part, you will need to attend ONE testing session at the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging, John Radcliffe Hospital, University of Oxford. The appointment will be scheduled at a time that is convenient for you, lasting approximately 2 hours, involving an MRI brain scan and some assessments of hand/arm movement.

  • We are recruiting male or female volunteers who are aged 18 and over. 
  • Stroke survivor volunteers should have had a stroke that affected one side of their body at least 6 months previously. 
  • You will be asked questions about your medical history to check your suitability for an MRI scan.
  • You will be compensated for your time.

If you are interested in participating and would like more information on the study, please contact Dr Ioana Grigoras ( or 01865 611296).
