We are currently recruiting a variety of participants for our studies at Boston University.

Studies may involve speech, swallowing or hand and arm function.

The goal of this work is to understand the correlation between non-invasive objective measures and qualitative measures of motor function.

We are looking for volunteers between the ages of 4 and 100 years with no history of voice, speech, swallowing, or upper extremity disorder, no regular use of a hearing aid and no history of neurological disease or stroke.
