Get to volunteer in some cool experiments aimed at understanding how we select actions to visual stimuli. Dr Melvyn Goodale’s research group (Western University), in collaboration with Dr Philippe Chouinard’s research group (La Trobe University, Australia), is carrying out experiments to answer this question.

To be included, you must be:


-aged 18 to 40 years,

-have normal or corrected vision by contact lenses (eye glasses will not do),

-have no metal in the body,

-have no personal or family history of epilepsy,

-be in good health.

Welders, solderers, and soldiers cannot participate.

We are asking participants to attend two sessions within a two week-long period (approx. 3 hrs in total). During the two session, participants will have functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), respectively. The experiments will take place at Western’s Brain and Mind Institute and Western’s Centre for Functional and Metabolic Mapping. Participants will receive compensation.

To receive more information about the study, please contact Dr Philippe Chouinard at To help ensure the privacy of potential participants, we ask that you do not tag or tweet this message.
