FAIRFIELD — The Department of Veterans Affairs is looking for veterans who experienced a concussion, traumatic brain injury or stroke who are between 18 and 80 years old to take part in computerized experiments of perception and cognition, according to an announcement from the VA.

The experiments are part of a study being conducted by Dr. Diane Swick to evaluate the effects of brain injury on human brain functions. The project is being conducted by the VA Northern California Health Care System, Martinez Campus.

Participants, after being screened, will be asked to have electrodes attached to their scalp and will be asked to respond to visual and auditory stimuli, according to the release. The experiment sessions will last between two and four hours. Participants will be compensated for time and transportation costs.
