Native English Speakers needed for an ERP Study
Research Study Details
Cognitive Processes in Bilinguals: ERP Studies
Researchers are looking for native English speakers to participate in a study of bilingual language processing. The experiment takes place over 2 sessions and will take approximately 2 hours each session. We would like to schedule the sessions 1 week apart. Participants will be paid $10 per hour. The study will involve learning words in Dutch and being later tested on these words, while the brain activity is recorded. For that, a special cap (similar to a swimming cap) will be placed on the participant's head and some electro-conductive gel will be used. After each session, participants will be given the option to wash their hair if they so choose.
Participant will be asked to put on a special cap and some electro-conductive gel will be used to record brain activity. Participants will be asked to complete a series of tasks on a computer. The tasks will include presenting visual stimuli on a screen, naming pictures and words presented on a screen into a microphone, solving math equations while memorizing words, and performing a spatial attention task.
