Research Opportunity at MIT…

Are you the hearing parent of a Deaf child between the ages of 4 and 13? The Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at MIT needs your help! We are conducting an fMRI study focused on language and the brain in people with different language experiences.

If your child uses ASL, is between the ages of 4 and 13, and has no metal in their body, he or she may qualify to participate in our study. Participation requires a visit to our lab in the Boston, Massachusetts area. If your child qualifies, we will cover the costs of your travel and hotel accommodations!

Coming to the lab is usually fun for kids–we play games, have snacks, and they get lots of prizes throughout the day. Kids who are interested can also take home a picture of their brain at the end of their visit.

If you are interested in having your child participate in our study, please fill out the form at this link–
