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.
