Participate in our Research

Help us learn about the human brain!

The Barnard Vision Lab is recruiting participants for studies about how the brain recognizes written words and other types of objects. We seek participants between the ages of 18 and 50, with normal or corrected-to-normal vision. 


Some studies you can do from home over the web browser, some you do in our lab on the Barnard campus, and some involve MRI brain imaging. 


Volunteers are paid $16/per hour for participation (or $40 per MRI session).
