MEG study on the neuroscience of touch perception

Neuroscience of touch perception

About the Study:

The goal of the experiment is to measure brain activity when you receive a touch on your finger that is either externally generated or self-generated (non-painful). We are particularly interested in measuring brain activity when a touch is unexpectedly omitted. 


The experiment is divided into two sessions. Session 1 (30 minutes) involves a structural MRI scan at Stockholm University. Session 2 (3 hours) involves 2 hours of MEG measurement plus a behavioural task completed afterwards.
