Spanish and Chinese native speakers are required for a study organised by Gary Dicks, a PhD student and demonstrator in Psychology.
The study involves reading and responding to English words from a computer screen while connected to an EEG (electroencephalography) machine in order to investigate the sequence of brain activity associated with orthography (spelling/form) and phonology (sound) during reading. You will receive a £20 high-street voucher in return for your participation.
What is the criteria to take part?
- 18 years of age or over
- Native Spanish
- Native Chinese
- English as second language
- IELTS of 6.5 or higher
- No language/learning/neurological disorders
Please note: EEG requires special conductive gel on the head that has to be washed out (facilities are provided for this) but the procedure is entirely non-invasive.
