Researchers at the University of South Australia are conducting a study to investigate the effect of non-invasive electrical stimulation of auricular vagus nerve (small nerve in the ear) on brain physiology.

What is involved?

Experimental sessions will include auricular vagus nerve stimulation and recordings of brain activity using transcranial magnetic stimulation. The transcutaneous vaus nerve stimulation and transcranial magnetic stimulation techniques are safe and routinely used in movement and learning research.

Participant’s Honorarium?

All participants who attend the 3 experimental sessions will receive a $50 Coles/Myer Vouchers at the completion of the 3 sessions.
