Seeking participants for a behavioral and brain imaging study

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, and an English speaker; have a high school education or higher; and have no history of psychological or neurological disorders. 

Participation will include cognitive and language testing lasting approximately 4.5-5.5 hours, a half hour EEG, and a 1-hour MRI brain scan at Kennedy Krieger Institute one to two weeks later. Between visits, participants will wear a watch-style sensor to track sleep/wake patterns.

Visit 1: Cognitive and behavioral assessment and EEG (5 to 6 hours). During the interval between visits you will be asked to wear a small portable sensor to track sleep patterns.

Visit 2: A 1-hour MRI brain scan at Kennedy Krieger Institute and return the portable sensor. Optional: The procedures from Visit 1 can be divided between two separate days.

Compensation is $250 for two or three visits.
