Upcoming Events

Thursday, April 24, 2014 (All day)

NOTE: The experiment is running 6 days a week (not just on Thursdays), including evenings and Saturdays. Email mercator@uga.edu for open appointments.

We’re looking for native speakers of English, as well as advanced non-native speakers, who are right-handed, 18 yrs or older, and can spare 30-45 minutes to participate in a research study. Depending on your instructor, you may be able to earn extra credit in one of your courses for participating.

The study is entitled “Individual differences in the hemispheric lateralization of idiomatic ambiguity resolution.” The purpose of this study is to examine the involvement of the left and right hemispheres of the brains of different groups of people as they read idioms and other phrases in English. You will be asked to perform some basic tasks in front of a computer (~15 minutes), and then to fill out a few short questionnaires (~20 minutes).

If you’re interested in participating or have any questions, you can contact Doug Merchant, Co-Investigator, at mercator@uga.edu, or Dr. Timothy Gupton, Principal Investigator, at gupton1@uga.edu.

We hope you will be able to join us! For more information please contact Dr. Timothy Gupton at gupton1@uga.edu.
