We are interested in how a child's language skills might be related to their other thinking and listening skills, such as the ability to hear rhythms in music. We invite 5-7-year-old typically developing children to participate in this study. No music training is expected or needed.
Children will be asked to:
- Respond to tests of their linguistic and musical abilities.
- Sit still and listen to sounds and play computer games while wearing a damp stretchy cap.
- Spit into a cup
Typically developing 5-7-year-olds
