New Research Study for Children and Young People with NF1
NF1 Non Invasive Brain Stimulation
Many young people with Neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF1) experience daily problems with learning, paying attention in the classroom and concentrating. We don’t have many treatments for these difficulties at the moment.
At the University of Manchester, we are starting a new study to try understand how a particular treatment called ‘transcranial current stimulation’ (tCS) works to help children learn better. The study will involve three research visits and brain scans. We cover all expenses and provide a £20 gift voucher for each study visit as a token of appreciation (£60 for 3 visits).
This study is for young people who are between 11-17 years old with a diagnosis of NF1. If you would like to find out more about this study, please get in touch by calling Dr Garg on 0161 701 4531, or by emailing email@example.com.
