What we do:
Dr. Ursula Bellugi and her colleagues are conducting studies sponsored by the National Institutes of Health and other sources to find out more about brain development and its relationship to the development of language, thinking, and social behavior. Many of these studies are conducted with children and adults who have developmental conditions such as Williams syndrome and Down syndrome, in addition to persons without such conditions. Participants across all groups range in age from infancy to adolescence and adulthood. You have been asked to participate because we are interested in your thinking and problem solving abilities, and how those abilities might be different or similar to other groups of participants. Your participation in these studies is completely voluntary.
Description of studies you could take part in:
$10 per hour, in cash after each session
There are no known risks associated with participation in these studies. You may feel tired or mildly frustrated during the sessions because some of the tests are designed to show strengths and weaknesses. These feelings should disappear when you take a break or at the end of the testing session, and we will endeavor to make you comfortable.
