Probing and perturbing perceptual decision-making

Probing the neural mechanisms of decisions with combined transcranial magnetic stimulation and electrophysiological recordings

Trial categories: Brain

Sponsoring organisation: Medical Research Council

You will learn and perform a task that involves judging the direction of motion of clouds of moving dots while we apply TMS pulses to different parts of your brain. TMS is a technique that can change activity in a brain region for a few seconds.

You will participate in a maximum of 3 sessions of 90 minutes each; in the first session you will learn how to do the task on a computer, we will make a 3D image of your brain using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and we will try out the TMS so you know what it is like.

In the other two sessions, you will perform the computer task before and after we apply TMS.

You will be compensated for your time.
