Visual and kinesthetic contributions

Principal Investigator:
Dr. Romeo Chua

Details:
We are conducting a number of studies designed to examine the interactions between vision and kinesthesis in the control and adaptation of voluntary movement.  We are interested in the role of sensory and error signals in motor control. In this study, you will be asked to make reaching movements in response to visual targets. Your primary goal will be to make target-directed reaches as quickly and accurately as possible under a variety of visual and kinesthetic sensory conditions.  A computer-controlled motion analysis system will be used to monitor eye and hand movements. Visual and kinesthetic stimuli will be presented via visual displays and muscle vibration, respectively.

Eligibility: You may be able to participate if:

– Age 18-35
– Right-Handed
– Have normal or corrected vision
– No known neurological disorder
– Fully vaccinated for COVID-19

Location: Room 202, Osborne Ctr Unit 2, 6108 Thunderbird Blvd, UBC Vancouver Campus

Contact Information: If you are interested in participating, please send an email to pmdlab.ubc@gmail.com.  We will be in touch with further study information and scheduling.

Reimbursement/Time: The study consists of one session of testing, approximately 60-75 minutes. Participants will receive a $10 honorarium for participation.
