Age, tactile sensitivity and brain imaging

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
