2-Hour Research Study

Have you ever wondered why your fingers prune in water? We are studying the effect of warm water immersion on finger wrinkling phenomenon.  This simple test can be used to non-invasively assess the health of your nervous system.  The testing session is 2 hours long and consists of anthropometric measurements, photographs of your face, pre-immersion photographs of your fingers, pre- and post-immersion hand volume measurements, 30 minutes of hand immersion in warm water, photographs of your fingers during immersion, and post-immersion photographs of your fingers.

All identifiable photographs are stored in a secure folder and are only used to compare facial wrinkling status to the response of finger wrinkling.
