Call for participants – research on how exercise influences brain function and skill acquisition

Exercise, Brain Plasticity, and Motor Control

The Neurophysiology of Human Movement Laboratory – University of Adelaide, is conducting research on how exercise influences brain function and skill acquisition.

This study involves two separate testing sessions of approximately 2.5 hours each which take place in the Helen Mayo South building – Frome Road. These sessions include neural assessments using safe, non-invasive brain stimulation and an acute bout of stationary cycling.

We require individuals who are:

  •  Aged 18-35 years
  •  Have no history of concussion, seizures or epilepsy
  •  Are not currently taking psychoactive medication (e.g. anti-depressants)
  •  Have no metal implants in the head

Participants will be compensated for their time
