Low-Intensity Focused Ultrasound Longevity Research

     

     

The Legon Lab at the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC is seeking volunteers to participate in cutting edge research investigating different durations of low-intensity focused ultrasound (LIFU). LIFU is a noninvasive brain stimulation method. This study will involve multiple sessions over a few weeks which will include a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan, a computed tomography (CT) scan, LIFU, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), measurement of muscle contractions, and questionnaires.

Primary goal: To investigate different durations of low-intensity focused ultrasound (LIFU), a non-invasive brain stimulation method.

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

How much time will it take? 

Each session will take 2.5 to 3 hours for a total of about 20.5 hours.

How will I be compensated? 

Participants will be compensated approximately $420, depending on study participation.
