Modulating Movement Intention via Cortical Stimulation

Study Description

Modulating Movement Intention Via Cortical Stimulation

The purpose of this protocol is to learn about movement intention and volition. To improve such knowledge, investigators will conduct sub-studies using multiple non-invasive methodologies. These results could provide preliminary data for subsequent studies evaluating local and global efficacy of plasticity-inducing treatments for PMD symptoms.
