How to Participate

We are recruiting participants for the following projects:


Enrolling children with developmental language disorders and children without developmental language disorders

Understanding feedback-based learning in children with developmental language disorders

Child with EEG net
We are recruiting children aged 8-12 years with and without a history of a developmental language disorder. Our goal is to better understand how children use feedback to learn new information.





Enrolling individuals with stroke-related aphasia

iPad treatment study

IPad for research participation

We are enrolling individuals with aphasia in a 10-week tablet-based therapy paradigm. Therapy is aimed at improving naming.

Rhythm and timing abilities in people with aphasia

Microphone and monitors

Our goal is to understand the core deficit in rhythm processing in Aphasia, and to examine the role of tapping and rhythmic ability in Melodic Intonation Therapy.

Examining the behaviors and neurophysiology of nonlinguistic learning in adults with and without aphasia

EEG net

We are recruiting 18 – 75 year olds with and without aphasia.  We look at behaviors and electrical signals in the brain during learning.  We hope that a better understanding of learning can help us improve treatment for individuals with aphasia.

Tracking language deficits in aphasia

Language ability assessment chart
We are recruiting individuals who have stroke-related aphasia.  In this study, we examine how language ability changes over time.


Please contact us if you have aphasia due to stroke.


Music-based treatment for aphasia

Microphone and monitors

We are recruiting people with aphasia. We use a music-based treatment for nonfluent aphasia. With testing and treatment, participation lasts approximately 15 weeks.

Enrolling individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI)

Learning and executive functions in TBI

We are recruiting people who have experienced a traumatic brain injury (TBI), as well as healthy adults.

Learn how to participate.


Enrolling healthy adults

Individual differences in feedback-based learning

EEG net

We are recruiting individuals between the ages of 50 and 75 years. Our goal is to study how people learn new information.

Using eye tracking to examine behaviors of learning

Eye-tracking monitor

We are recruiting 18 to 80 year olds to participate in studies on learning.  Participants will look at pictures on a computer screen while we record responses and where your eyes are looking.
