Listed below are the various research projects that are currently open and enrolling participants. If you find a study that looks like a good fit for you, please email the study coordinator for more information.

Brain-Balance Study

Study Population: Apparently healthy adults 18-35 yrs old

Time Commitment: Four visits; 1-2 hrs each

Study Coordinator:

IRB Approval: IRB-20-310


Balance Study

Study Population: Apparently healthy adults 18 years and older
Time Commitment: Three visits; 60-90 min. per visit

  1. Paperwork: you will fill in a health questionnaire. This is to help us assure that there are no risks if you participate.
  2. Anthropometric measurements: we will measure your height, weight and muscle area.
  3. Balance testing: you will stand on a platform and we will measure how much you sway.
  4. Evoked contractions: by placing a stimulator on your head, we will elicit contractions of your forearm muscles. The procedure is painless and safe.
  5. Maximal contractions and reaction tasks: you will be asked to do maximal wrist flexions and extensions. In addition, we will measure your reaction capacity
