Effects of non-invasive brain stimulation on mood and decision making in healthy adults
The purpose of this study is to examine how the brain processes information and enables us to make decisions. The results will guide our future research aimed at helping individuals who suffer from depression. Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation is a form of neurostimulation that uses constant, low current delivered to the brain via sensors on the scalp. Participants may experience some mild temporary discomfort during tDCS. By using this technique, we hope to find out how different brain regions contribute to making decisions. This study involves one video call and 2 visits to the Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity at the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Oxford. Each session will take no more than 2 hours.
We are looking for
We are looking for volunteers with low mood aged 18 - 45 years for a transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) study.
Volunteers will be reimbursed for their time and can win additional money depending on task performance.
