The I-STIM Study involves:
- Up to 27 visits over eight months
- Balance, walking, and memory testing
- 20 sessions of non-invasive brain stimulation
- Optional MRI scans
- Compensation of up to $510
Visits can take place in the comfort of your own home, or at the Marcus Institute’s Roslindale location. If you prefer to come to us, free parking and/or transportation can be provided.
