HELP OTHERS BY PARTICIPATING IN OUR RESEARCH!
We are specifically recruiting adults age 65 years and older.
Why? To find out more about how practice influences arm and hand movements in a variety of tasks simulating activities of daily living, such as feeding and writing.
What to expect? This non-invasive, behavioral study involves reaching and grasping objects in a typical workspace (i.e. sitting at a desk), and each visit will last about 1-2 hours. You may be asked to come in for 1-6 visits over the course of a month.
If you choose to participate, you will be compensated for your time ($30/visit)!
This study within the Motor Rehabilitation and Learning Lab at Arizona State University is non-invasive, minimal risk, and supervised by trained research assistants.
