We need male or female volunteers who are aged 18 and over, and fluent English-speaking.  Stroke survivor volunteers should have had a stroke at least 6 months previously and still have some difficulty with their hand and/or arm.  You will be asked questions about your medical history to check your suitability for an MRI scan and for brain stimulation. 

Testing sessions will take place at either the Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity (OHBA) or the Oxford Centre for Functional MRI (FMRIB).

We are looking for

We are looking for volunteers to participate in a study investigating how people learn motor tasks. We are recruiting participants who are neurologically healthy, and those who have had a stroke. This study involves 3 testing sessions each lasting 2 hours, to include an MRI scan, brain stimulation session and motor learning session. MRI is a type of brain scan that allows us to see how the brain is organised, processes information and performs skills like speech or memory. This scan is safe and does not involve any needles or injections.
