Participants needed for, "how does your brain learn motor skills?" Study






How does your brain learn a motor skill?

Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) are safe, non-invasive, and painless techniques that stimulate brain cells.

We are performing a study to investigate how the brain learns motor skills. Participants will perform a motor task, and we will use tDCS and TMS to evaluate your brain’s response.
