NINDS researchers seek healthy volunteers for an outpatient research study. The purpose of this study is to understand more about how the brain controls motor function. Volunteers may receive brain, skin, and nerve stimulation, and may perform tests of hand movement, behavior, and learning (some tests may be done during an MRI scan of the brain). Volunteers may be scheduled for between 1-20 sessions. Sessions will be of various durations, lasting up to 8 hours each. There is no cost for research related procedures or participation. Compensation is provided. Refer to Study # 07-N-0122.
