tDCS Motor Learning Study

Introduction

You are invited to participate in our study on the Boost of Motor Learning with transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). This study involves learning a finger sequence task as electrical currents are passed through electrodes on your scalp.

The experiment takes place over one session that lasts approximately 2 hours, including a 1-hour break. The total duration of electrical stimulation throughout the entire study will be no more than 12 minutes. You will be compensated $15/hour for your time.

IMPORTANT

Eligibility requirements:
You may not participate if any of the following applies to you:

  • You are left-handed
  • You have skin disorders, open wounds, burns, etc. on your scalp
  • You wear a wig/weave over your scalp
  • Your hair is braided (cornrows, dreadlocks, etc.)
  • You wear headgear that you cannot remove during the experiment
  • You have any neurological or psychiatric disorders
  • You have received medication for neurological or psychiatric disorders over the past three years
  • You have suffered traumatic brain injury
  • You suffer from chronic headache, nausea, or drowsiness
  • You have medical devices or metal implants in your body
  • You have metallic tattoos on your body
  • You have a motor disability affecting your upper extremities
  • You are visually impaired (legally blind or totally blind)

Other Considerations

You may experience some discomfort during electrical stimulation, but it will subside quickly after the experiment. You may end the experiment at any time if you find it intolerable.

The experiment requires the use of nontoxic electrode gel, which may get stuck in your hair. You may wash and dry your hair after the experiment.

For your safety, you may not wear corrective glasses during the experiment. Please wear contact lenses if necessary.

Your voluntary participation or lack thereof in this study will not affect your relationship with CCNY and those involved in the study.
