Classified Ad - Comprehension of Non-Fictional Texts after Brain Injury
Jocelyn Yu, MS, a PhD student at the University of Minnesota, is looking for people with traumatic brain injury (aged 18 – 64) in a study that looks at how much people understand after reading a short passage. The aim of the study is to compare how people with and without traumatic brain injuries evaluate their understanding of a text. The study includes one approximately 3.5-hour session of standardized testing. All participants will be compensated $35 for their involvement. If you are interested in learning more about this program and to find out if you are eligible, contact Jocelyn Yu at yuxxx583@umn.edu or 612-276-2250.
