Healthy Volunteers Research Projects

Are you someone who does not have pain but would be happy to be a control participant?  Then this page is for you!

Alternatively, if you are researcher and would like to list your study contact us here. There will be a tiny fee to cover our costs.

Do you want to experience one of the BiM group studies first hand? We are looking for participants for a study that is investigating the plasticity response in the brain to an aversive stimulus.

Over three experimental sessions you will be asked some questions and your brain activity will be recorded using electroencephalography, your hand will be stimulated with an electrical stimulation device (in one session this will cause transient pain lasting only 50 seconds!), and you will also have your brain stimulated using a non-invasive device. Reimbursement via shopping voucher at $20 per hour is offered.
