In this experiment, you will read sentences on a computer and complete some quick memory and verbal computer tasks. Additionally, you will fill out a language history questionnaire. During the reading task, we will record your naturally occurring brain activity using sensors attached to a cap. A small amount of water-soluble gel will get in your hair from the cap, but will easily wash out. If you need glasses or contacts to read, please wear them on the day of your session. Please do not wear make-up or earrings, and do not come into the lab with wet hair.
