WE ARE CURRENTLY RECRUITING PARTICIPANTS!

Participants Needed for Research in Drug Study

We are looking for right-handed, male volunteers aged 21-35 years to take part in a study of the sensory control of the hand.You would be asked to receive Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) pulses to the motor areas of the brain and peripheral nerve stimulation to the hand. You will also be administered the pharmacological agent L-DOPA.Your participation would involve 2 sessions, each session will be about 4.5 hours long. In appreciation for your time, you will receive payment at a rate of $20 per hour.

This study has been reviewed by, and received ethics clearance by the Hamilton Integrated Research Ethics Board (HIREB) under project #7716.

Participants Needed for Hormone Study

We are looking for right-handed, female volunteers aged 18-35 years to take part in a research study that is looking at the effects of hormone levels on a brain plasticity. Specifically, we will be looking to see whether receiving brain stimulation at different times of your menstrual cycle will impact brain plasticity.During this study you will be required to participate in one genotype test, and three session of brain stimulation using repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation and at home ovulation tests.  This will span a total of three visits. In appreciation for your time, you will receive payment at a rate of $20 per hour.

This study has been reviewed by the Hamilton Integrated Research Ethics Board (HIREB) under project #15801.

Participants Needed for cTMS &  rTMS Study

We are looking for right-handed volunteers, aged 18-35 years, to take part in a research study investigating motor control of the hand. 

Your participation would involve 4 sessions about 2 hours long. In compensation and appreciation for your time, you will receive payment at a rate of $20 per hour. 

The purpose of this study is to assess how controlled pulse parameter transcranial magnetic stimulation (cTMS) can modulate the excitability and organization of the motor cortex. This study involves Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) pulses delivered to the motor areas of the brain. This research will provide valuable information that will be fundamental for understanding the mechanisms of neuroplasticity. 

 

This study has been reviewed by the Hamilton Integrated Research Ethics Board (HiREB) under project #15297.

Participants Needed for Research in Handedness

We are looking for volunteers, aged 18-35 years, to take part in a research study investigating how being right or left-handed influences the control of the hand.

 

Your participation would involve 1 session about 2.5 hours long. In compensation and appreciation for your time, you will receive payment at a rate of $20 per hour.

The purpose of this study is to assess how handedness influence activity of the motor area of the brain.

You would be asked to contract your hand muscles and receive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation to the motor regions of the brain. This study involves Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) pulses delivered to the motor areas of the brain. This research will provide valuable information that will be fundamental for understanding the mechanisms of muscular representation in the motor cortex of the brain. 

 

This study has been reviewed by the Hamilton Integrated Research Ethics Board (HiREB) under project #16360.
