Georgetown University and Gallaudet University Seek Hearing ASL Native Signers (CODAS)

 

Help us see and understand the brain of a signer!

 

The Center for the Study of Learning (CSL) at Georgetown University in collaboration with the Center for Visual Language and Visual Learning (VL2) is looking for Hearing ASL Native Signers (CODAs) to participate in a study.

 

The study involves brain imaging (using non-invasive functional MRI) and behavioral measures of cognition.

 

To qualify, you must be: Hearing; between age 18-45; have used ASL since before 2 y.o.; free of metal implants (removable piercings are OK)

 

Full participation involves 2 cognitive testing sessions (2 hours each) and 1 fMRI scanning session (2.5 hours). Financial compensation will be provided ($20/hour for cognitive testing and $30/hour for fMRI scanning).
