SUNY Upstate seeks participants for scoliosis study
SYRACUSE, N.Y. – SUNY Upstate Medical University seeks participants for a research study investigating adolescent idiopathic scoliosis.
The study on adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) will investigate how the brain may connect with the spinal cord to cause AIS. Findings may lead to improved testing and better non-invasive treatments for AIS. The study is conducted at the Institute for Human Performance, 505 Irving Ave., Syracuse. Procedures include testing of nerves and muscles of the arms, legs and abdomen through magnetic stimulation; mapping of the brain through MRI; and evaluation of hand function through occupational therapy tests. Each test takes approximately 90 minutes and volunteers will be paid $25 for each test that is completed. Volunteers must be aged 8 to 60 years with or without scoliosis. To volunteer, call 315-464-9943.
