Cervical Dystonia Non-invasive Brain Stimulation Study!

Do you have Cervical Dystonia and are interested in participating in a non-invasive brain stimulation study?

Professor Lynley’s presentation Can non-invasive brain stimulation improve dystonia – Slides

Non-invasive brain stimulation

Recent studies using technologies such as non-invasive brain stimulation to stimulate particular areas of the brain have shown emerging trends illustrating the potential to make a meaningful impact on quality of life in people with cervical dystonia. This study will investigate the effects of non-invasive brain stimulation to the cerebellum at the base of the brain on performance of a finger tracking task in people with CD and age and gender matched controls. People with CD will undergo five repeated sessions to assess the effects on their dystonia severity and quality of life. The research will determine if cerebellar stimulation has the potential to be used as a future treatment for some people with CD.

This study is being conducted by Professor Lynley Bradnam and Dr Alana McCambridge from the Clinical Neurostimulation Laboratory, Discipline of Physiotherapy at University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Professor Teresa Kimberley, University of Minnesota, USA and Professor Sheila Lennon, Professor of Physiotherapy at Flinders University.
