The JHU Language Neuromodulation Lab is looking for participants to serve as neurologically healthy controls in a research study investigating an intervention for language disorders. To participate, you must be between 50 and 85 years of age, right-handed, an English speaker, have a high school education or higher, and have no history of psychological or neurological disorder. Participation will include cognitive and language testing lasting approximately three to four hours followed by a one-hour MRI brain scan at Kennedy Krieger Institute one or two weeks later. Between visits, participants will wear a watch-style sensor to track sleep/ wake patterns.
Visit 1: Cognitive and behavioral assessment (three to four hours). Between visits you will be asked to wear a small portable sensor to track sleep.
Visit 2: A one-hour MRI brain scan at Kennedy Krieger Institute and return the portable sensor.
