Visual memory and sign language

Aim:  Understand how sign language skills help to keep visual information in mind.

We are looking for native signers of BSL, who are also right handed, have no metal inside their body and no history of neurological conditions.

The study takes part in central London:

Birkbeck-UCL Centre for Neuroimaging

26 Bedford Way, London,

WC1H 0AP; 

Tel: 020 7679 5475

It involves doing a task while having an fMRI scan (2hrs – but only 1 hr in the scanner). We'll cover travel expenses, and you will get £30 and a picture of your brain!
