Low-Intensity Focused Ultrasound Parameters Research
The Legon Lab at the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC is seeking volunteers to participate in cutting edge research investigating different settings 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 settings 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 about 2.5 hours for a total of about 17.5 hours.
How will I be compensated?
Participants will be compensated approximately $360, depending on study participation.
