Stimulation Study for People With and Without Spinal Cord Injuries
Protocol: STUDY00007259
Full Title
Neuromodulation after spinal cord injury to improve limb function
The University at Buffalo (UB) Department of Rehabilitation Sciences is looking for adult volunteers with and without spinal cord injuries for a study on hand movement. The goal of the study is to learn about how the brain, nerves, and muscles of the body are connected and perform everyday tasks. This may help us to develop ways to improve the hand functions of people with spinal cord injuries.

Participants will be in this study for 2 to 3 weeks. They will attend 3 study visits lasting about 2 to 3 hours on the UB South Campus (at Main Street and Bailey Avenue). During the study visit, you will have stimulations of your body by equipment placed on your head. You will also have different bodily responses measured by equipment taped on different parts of your body. Participants will be paid $30 for each study visit and an extra $10 per hour for any visit taking longer than 3 hours.
