Neural basis of sensorimotor learning

Study Overview

We are a group of scientists from IU who are interested in how the sensory and motor areas of the brain work together to keep your hand movements accurate (sensorimotor learning). To do this we are conducting an experiment that combines reaching tasks with transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), a non-invasive brain stimulation technique that is used in research and clinical applications.

Study Description

The behavioral tasks involve reaching to targets you see in a mirror. We will briefly use transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), a non-invasive brain stimulation technique, to find out what role the simulated brain area plays in sensorimotor learning. Depending on group assignment, some participants will be asked to have an MRI scan of their brain on a day prior to the main session. MRI and TMS are considered very safe and have been in use for decades

Participants will be compensated for their participation.
