Are you over 21 and have you had a stroke? You may be able to participate in a research study that hopes to learn how different brain areas control movement before and after stroke and when these brain areas are most sensitive to stimulation.
The purpose of this study is to use TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) while subjects are making reaching movements in a robotic arm device in order to discover how different brain areas control movement before and after stroke and when these brain areas are most sensitive to TMS.
IRB: STUDY19080097- Brain areas that control reaching movements after subcortical stroke: Task-relevant connectivity and movement-synchronized brain stimulation
