Principal Investigator: James Booth, Ph.D.
Brain Development Lab is recruiting children who are deaf and/or hard of hearing, from ages 10 to 16 to participate in a research study that examines how children learn to read.
This study will involve two visits:
- Your child will complete standardized testing and a mock MRI scan, where he/she will learn how to do the judgment tasks. Then children will complete a hearing test and judgement tasks in the real MRI.
- Your child will complete more standardized testing and judgement tasks in the real MRI.
Families will receive their child's test scores, a picture of their brain, and compensation for participating. Parents will also be paid for transportation expenses and accommodations (airfare, hotel, etc.) for those who must drive a long way or fly to Nashville!
Find out if your child is eligible to participate by completing this short questionnaire.
