Av Elizabeth Hörlin Skapad: 2021-02-23

The aim of this study is to measure cortcal actvity whilst performing a test of tactile 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 Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), a method for collecting electromagneitc signals from the brain, in order to investigate neural differences that may be associated with individual differences in tactile acuity. After expressing interest here, we will email you a screening questionnaire to assess your eligibility for the study!

The experiment will be conducted on the 3rd and 4th March 2021, and you will be compensated with a gift card worth 500 SEK.

We seek those who fit the following criteria:
• Female
• 18-30 years old
• No epilepsy
• No claustrophobia
• Good self-rated health
• Not lactatng or pregnant
• No medicaton (apart from contraceptves and blood pressure medicatons)
• No self-reported current or previous neurological or psychiatric disorder
• Not currently or previously seeking treatment for alcohol or drug misuse
• No implants or metal objects in the body (including piercings that cannot be removed; if you have large tattoos you should tell the experimenter)
