Seeking native English speakers for language studies

The Neuroplasticity and Development Lab is recruiting for behavioral experiments that investigate how life experiences shape language processing. Study participation involves reading and listening to sentences and analyzing scenarios about colors, people, and places. Participation involves one to two sessions at Ames Hall that are each two to three hours long. Participants are compensated $20/hour and $10 for each additional 30 minutes.

The lab is looking for participants between the ages of 20 and 70. Eligible participants are monolingual native English speakers who have no hearing loss and normal or corrected vision.
