Looking for healthy volunteers for an MRI study to understand the effects of TUS on decision making

The study involves attending four sessions at the new Brain Research & Imaging Centre (BRIC) at Plymouth Science Park. In the first session, you will be asked to fill out some questionnaires that will ask about your physical and mental health as well as MRI compatibility before undergoing a short MRI scan. In the following three sessions, we will use transcranial ultrasound stimulation (TUS) to stimulate a region of your brain before you undergo another MRI scan.


You will be reimbursed £120 in total for attending all four study sessions. We will also pay for your travel expenses up to £10 for each visit to the BRIC.


For more information, please send an email to Siti: siti.yaakub at plymouth.ac.uk.


The study has been approved by the University of Plymouth Faculty of Health Research Ethics and Integrity Committee (Ref: 2487).
