Do you have chronic pain due to fibromyalgia?

If so, and you are between the ages of 18-64, you may qualify for this research study. Fibromyalgia is an example of “chronic musculoskeletal pain.”

Volunteers needed for current research study

This study uses a technique of non-invasive brain stimulation called transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). The purpose of this study is to investigate if this type of stimulation can change pain perception in people who have chronic musculoskeletal pain.

Testing will involve a total of 5 visits at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, located in Boston, MA. Participants will be compensated $12.50 per hour for partaking in the study, and parking will be reimbursed. For more information, please contact the Laboratory of Neuromodulation by phone at 617-573-2499 or by email at recruitment@neuromodulationlab.org.
