The role of middle temporal and frontoparietal areas in limb motor control

The goal of this research is to understand the role of motion-processing areas on limb motor control. We will be using behavioral studies and combining that with functional brain imaging, EEG, and non-invasive brain stimulation using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). TMS has been used in thousands of studies and is a very safe method to understand brain function for eye hand coordination.

There will be three visits. Participants will under go brain scanning. They will perform eye-hand coordination tasks by grabbing a robotic manipulandum. During the eye-hand coordination tasks, participants' brain activity will be measured using electroencephalography (EEG) and muscle activity using surface electromyography (EMG). Researchers will also apply transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to temporarily inhibit and excite different brain areas. TMS is a noninvasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells

Participants should be able to sit upright in a chair for long periods (up to 2 and a half hours) with rest
Participants should be able to grasp and move objects with both hands
Participants should be able to lie still and perform behavioral tasks inside a magnetic scanner for up to 60 minutes

Exclusion Criteria:
History of neurological disorders (e.g., Seizures, Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Friedreich's ataxia, aneurism, brain tumor, epilepsy, traumatic brain injury, a concussion in the last five years)
Any history of musculoskeletal disorders (e.g., carpal tunnel syndrome, any form of arthritis, fibromyalgia, tendinitis, or previous injury or surgery to the bones or joints in your neck, upper back, arms or hands in the last six months)
