Seeking volunteer native English speakers for behavioral study

The Neuroplasticity and Development Lab is conducting a study that examines how people understand the meaning of sentences.

In this experiment, participants will complete a few memory tasks and a self-paced sentence listening task on a computer. The study takes place at Ames Hall 132D and lasts approximately 1.5 hours. Compensation is $23.

Participants must be native American English speakers between the ages of 18 and 45. Participants must also have normal or corrected-to-normal vision and normal hearing, with no history of neurological-, cognitive-, or language-related disorders. If you were previously a participant in our lab's self-paced listening or self-paced reading studies, you are not eligible for this study.
