Take part in a motor action research study and earn cash

Maria Gkotsi, PhD student from the UCL Institute of Neurology is recruiting participants for a study which focuses on understanding whether planned motor action can be inhibited. Researchers will ask participants to sit comfortably in a chair, a watch-like device will be attached at the wrist and will send tiny vibrations that are painless. Participants will feel a sensation but it will not be painful. Researchers will ask participants to undertake a behavioural task that would be a simple reaction time task throughout the experiment.
