Low-Intensity Focused Ultrasound Brain Signal Research
The Legon Lab at Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC is recruiting volunteers for a cutting-edge brain research study. If eligible, participants will take part in a five-session study involving magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, a computed tomography (CT) scan, low-intensity focused ultrasound (LIFU), and questionnaires.
Primary goal: To investigate the effects of low-intensity focused ultrasound (LIFU), a non-invasive brain stimulation method, on brain signals
Who is eligible?
- Healthy adults aged 18-65
- Availability to participate in Roanoke for a multi-session study
- Meets all MRI and CT safety qualifications
- Not pregnant
- No known neurologic disorder, history of neurologic disorder, or history of drug dependence
How much time will it take?
Each session will take 2 to 3 hours for a total of about 12 to 14.5 hours.
How will I be compensated?
Participants will be compensated between $250 and $300, depending on study participation.
