Cranial Nerve Stimulation Study
The Monell Chemical Senses Center is looking for volunteers for a smell study to be conducted at the Center. This research explores the role of cranial nerve stimulation and how it impacts your sense of smell.
Eligible to adults 18 – 50 years of age. Subjects will be asked to detect, identify, discriminate, and evaluate various smells. Subjects may be asked to wear a small ear clip that contains an electrode that delivers a mild electrical impulse to stimulate cranial nerves.
The total estimated time of your participation in this study is up to 3 (three) hours over separate visits.
We will compensate subjects for participation and travel costs for each study visit. Compensation based upon completion of tasks and length of participation.
Some exclusion criteria apply; please contact the lab for more information.
