Are You a Native French-Speaker?
KU WANTS TO STUDY YOUR BRAIN! The University of Kansas (Lawrence campus) is seeking native French-speakers for an electrophysiological study on language processing in French. They are seeking native, European French speakers who were born and raised in a European, French-speaking country until at least the age of 15. Participants need to be 18 years of age or older, and must have no history of brain-related diseases, speech or hearing disorders, and must have normal or corrected vision.
Participants will be asked to listen to and make judgments of acceptability about French sentences while their brain activity is recorded using EEG (Electroencephalography). The procedure is non-invasive and painless. The project has been approved by the Human Subjects Committee at the University of Kansas (#20813).
Participants will attend one testing session at the KU Lawrence campus. The session will last about 2 hours, including filling out consent forms and other paperwork, and getting prepared for the EEG recording. The EEG recording itself takes approximately 30 minutes. Participants will be paid $15 per hour, plus an additional $10 (per session) if coming from the Kansas City area.
If you are interested in participating, please send an email to our project manager Kate Coughlin at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please write "French native speaker" in the subject line and indicate the following information in your email: name, email address, and days/times that would work best for you to come to Lawrence.
