Participate in Studies

The Brain Behaviour Laboratory is always recruiting adults who have suffered a stroke, have Parkinson’s disease, or are neurologically healthy to participate in research. We are also investigating motor learning in children with developmental disorders and their neurologically healthy peers.

If you would like to volunteer to be a part of any of our research studies please feel free to contact us. When recruiting for studies, information will be posted on this page about what type of people we are looking for as subjects. Detailed information about some of our current and past studies available on the research page.


EEG MOTION Study- Using Electroencephalography (EEG) to define Motor Function Study

Lead Researcher: Christy Jones PhD Candidate, Rehabilitation Sciences

Study start date: Spring 2022

Who can participate:
Healthy individuals between the ages of 18-85
 • Individuals who have experienced a stroke (> 6 months ago) and are aged 50-85

What is involved: 1 visit (2 hours total) to the UBC Center for Brain Health

The purpose of this research project is to investigate different measures of brain activity that are responsible for our movements, using a technique called Electroencephalography (EEG). We are interested in whether we can use measurable signals of brain activity to assess the degree of lost function after a stroke as well as baseline function in healthy individuals. During this study you will wear an EEG cap (similar to a swim cap), that will record your brain activity while you complete simple movements of your upper and lower limbs.
