Looking for healthy volunteers for a brain stimulation study to investigate the effects of TUS using MRI

The study involves attending three sessions at the Brain Research & Imaging Centre (BRIC) at Plymouth Science Park. During each session, we will use transcranial ultrasound stimulation (TUS) to modulate activity in a region of your brain before you enter the MRI for a brain scan.


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


You must be over 18 years of age and have no current diagnosis of any neurological or psychiatric conditions.

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).
