Monash University Research Project
Our team is conducting a study examining the benefits of exercise to the brain in healthy
older adults, and those with age-related diseases such as Parkinson’s disease. We are
currently looking to recruit people between the ages of 50-75 with no history of neurological
or psychiatric illness.
The study involves attending between two and five sessions on separate days at Monash
Biomedical Imaging, and Monash University Clayton Campus. You will be asked to complete
questionnaires about physical activity, mood, general health, and thinking skills. During each
session you may be asked to complete either computer-based tasks of learning and decision
making, 20 minutes moderate to high-intensity exercise, or have your brain activity
measured using a painless and safe technique called transcranial magnetic stimulation.
If you choose to participate you will be reimbursed $10 per hour for sessions involving
exercise and behavioural tasks and $15 per hour for sessions involving brain stimulation.
