Seeking monolingual native English speakers for behavioral studies

Volunteer native English speakers between the ages of 30 and 60 are being recruited for studies in the Neuroplasticity and Development Lab. These experiments investigate how life experiences shape perception and language processing. Study participation involves sentence comprehension, reasoning about visual and color perception, and analyzing scenarios involving people, creatures, and objects. Participants must have no hearing loss and normal/corrected vision.

Participation involves one to three sessions that are each one to three hours long. Based on your eligibility and availability, volunteers can participate in one study or up to all studies. Compensation is $20/hour and $10 for each additional 30 minutes, as well as transportation costs to and from the lab. These studies take place in Ames Hall on the Homewood campus.

To sign up for this study, fill out this brief questionnaire. A lab member will be in contact shortly with eligible volunteers. Interested volunteers are also welcome to contact the lab directly at 410-870-9895 or at
