Current Studies Looking for Participants

Dr. Ambike's Research

Dr. Ambike's Lab is looking for generally healthy persons ages 18 and over for a research study being conducted at Purdue University's West Lafayette campus.  This study examines the relationship between cognitive capacity and adaptive movements performed with the fingers and in locomotion.

Participation involves one visit to the lab lasting about 2.5 hours.  The visit may include completing computer-based tasks that involve responding quickly with the fingers to visual cues on the screen.  Another task involves taking a step onto a raised platform and then walking a few steps in response to a visual cue on a screen.  Participant will receive $25.00 for completing the study.

If interested, contact the research team at thomp732@purdue.edu or call 586-344-4827.

Dr. Ambike's Lab is also looking for generally healthy persons (age 18 and over) for a research study being conducted at Purdue University West Lafayette campus.  This study examins prehensile behavior by measuring the ability of healthy individuals to grasp and maneuver a hand-held object.

Participation involves one visit to the lab lasting about 2 hours.  The visit will include questionnaires and various tests pertaining to manual function and cognition and computer-based tasks that involves tracking a target on a computer screen with a cursor that is controlled by moving a hand-held object in different directions.  Participants will receive $20.00 for completing the study.

If interested, contact the research team at naik20@purdue.edu or call 765-772-8840.

Dr. Dydak's Research

Dr Dydak's imaging group is seeking volunteers in order to optimize novel Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) techniques/protocols. MRI allows to image the human body non-invasively and without ionizing radiation.

If interested, you may obtain your MRI images after the scan session.

If you would like to participate or to find out more information, please constact Sandy Snyder at: (765)-494-6488 or snyder33@purdue.edu.

Dr. Huber's Research

The Motor Speech Laboratory is looking for individuals to participate in an fMRI study on speech. Participants will undergo a battery of cognitive and language tests.  Participants will be asked to produce speech samples of a variety of lengths while their speech and respiratory movements are recorded, inside and outside of an MRI scanner.

If you are between the ages of 60 and 90 years old, with or without Parkinson's disease, you may be eligible to participate.

If interested, please contact Anny or Sandy in the Motor Speech Lab at (765)-494-6488 for more information.

The Motor Speech Laboratory at Purdue and the Speech Production Laboratory at the University of Massachusetts Amherst are looking for individuals with Parkinson's disease to participate in a study for decreased speaking volume. Qualified participants will either be assigned to an eight-week voice treatment program or to the non-treatment control group. As a research participant, you will be asked to attend four sessions at the university campus, where you will be asked to perform various speaking and breathing exercises.

If you are interested in participating or would like more information, please contact Sandy Snyder at (765)-494-6488 or by email at snyder33@purdue.edu.
