• Bilinguals Needed for Language Study

    Volunteers are needed to participate in a research study at The University of Connecticut investigating how bilingualism influences the brain.

    For this study, participants will listen to sounds and make decisions about them. As part of the study, we will record brainwaves from sensors placed on your head while you hear different sounds. We will also measure brain structure using MRI. MRI allows us to take detailed pictures of your brain and does not involve radiation.

    There are 3 sessions (up to 3 hrs. each), and scheduling is flexible. Participants will be paid ($10/hr) at the end of the 3 sessions and will receive their hearing test results and picture of their brain.

    To be eligible, you must:

    • Be over 18
    • Speak English and Spanish
    • Have no history of a hearing or neurological disorder
