Seeking Participants With and Without Parkinson's

Aim:

This project is a randomised controlled study designed to investigate the effects of non-invasive brain stimulation on postural control during cognitive dual task performance in healthy adults and people with Parkinson's disease.

 

Method:

In this project, participants will receive either active or inactive stimulation interventions, which are small electrical currents passed through skull, while undertaking a number of activities. Neither researchers nor participants know what intervention will be used in each visit.

The project will assess balance, physiological responses (e.g. heart rate, blood pressure) and blood circulation to the brain prior to, during, and after possible brain stimulation.

 

Requirments:

  • With and without Parkinson's disease and can walk without assistance.

  • 18 years or older.

  • Be naturally right-handed.

  • Be reasonably fluent in English.

  • Have no history of neurological, psychiatric condition or previous head injury.
