Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $215,970)

This is a continuation of a study of the physiological and neurocognitive effects of TASING in humans. NJ Medical School will recruit volunteers from human electromuscular interruption (HEMI) training programs and will study those who are TASED in a repeated measures design. A battery of pre-TASING, acute post-TASING, and longitudinal post-TASING data will be collected in three domains: musculature, cardiorespiratory, and neurophycological. These data will represent the first systematic evaluation of TASING in humans. The study will be part of an overall strategy to understand safety and risk factors associated with TASING in humans.
