Neural basis of multisensory learning

Study Overview

The purpose of this study is to find out if multisensory learning is accompanied by changes in resting state connectivity between sensory regions of the brain and other areas.

Study Description

We are a group of scientists from IU who are interested in better understanding how the areas of the brain work together to update your sensory perception. To do this we are conducting an experiment that combines behavioral tasks and MRI scans. 

The familiarization session introduces you to the behavioral tasks and allows you to try laying in the mock MRI scanner. At the main session, you would perform a reaching task several times outside the scanner, with MRI scans in between. The magnetic field and radio waves of MRI are considered too weak to do any biological damage. There are no long-term risks or consequences of MRI scans.

Familiarization session takes 30-40 minutes and main session takes ~2 hours.

Participants will be compensated for their participation.
