We are looking for volunteers to participate in a study investigating how a type of non-invasive brain stimulation called repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) influences different motor circuits.

We would want you to be involved in the study on 3 days, each around a week apart. On each day of the study, you would be asked to participate for one session lasting around 3 hours.

During each session, you will receive either active stimulation or sham and perform behavioural tasks involving finger and hand movements. We will also examine the changes in muscle activity induced by TMS. 

We need right-handed volunteers aged 18 to 35 years old. You must be in good health and without a history of epilepsy or any other disease affecting the brain or spinal cord. If you are pregnant, you should not volunteer.

Sessions will take place at the John Radcliffe Hospital. You will be compensated for your time.


If you are interested or would like to know more, we would be happy to discuss the study further with you - please contact:
