Type of Study

We are looking for healthy male volunteers between the age of 18 and 55 who like to participate in a study to evaluate the effects of a new medicine on the function of the brain.

Aim of Study

In each test phase we use a technique of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) that is routinely used in clinical practice. It involves the application of mild painless magnetic impulses to the head which evoke small twitches of a hand muscle. We will also ask you to fill out a questionnaire and participate in simple attention and drawing tests.

Each treatment period involves the oral application of a single dose of the study medication and 4 test phases (each taking about 60 minutes) over one day.
Reimbursement:  For the costs of time, travel and incidentals you will receive £320 as reimbursement.
