Age, tactile sensitivity and brain imaging

Denna studie är avslutad och tar tyvärr inte emot flera anmälningar!
The aim of this study is to measure differences in cortcal actvity between the young and elderly whilst performing a test of tactle acuity. This will be done using a fine texture discriminaton task during touch in combinaton with brain imaging.

During the study we will use Fucntonal Magnetc Resonance Imaging (fMRI), a method for collectng electromagnetc signals from the brain, in order to investgate neural differences that may be associated with age-related changes in tactle acuity.

The experiment will be conducted during April 2020 and you will be compensated with a gift card worth 500 SEK.

We seek those who fit the following criteria:
• Female
• Either 18-25 or 65+ years old
• No epilepsy
• No claustrophobia
• Good self-rated health
• Not lactatng or pregnant
• No medicaton (apart from contraceptves and blood pressure medicatons)
