Below, find information for volunteers interested in participating in behavioral and MEG studies on the cognitive processing of word structures at the MorphLab. For more specific details about what a visit to our lab entails, please visit our MEG Lab page.


MEG, or magnetoencephalography, is a noninvasive way to measure magnetic activity in the brain and poses no known health risks. Participation involves lying down with five small electromagnetic markers placed on your head, and looking at or listening to words or pictures while MEG sensors monitor activity in your brain.


Experiments last 1 to 2 hours and can be scheduled at a time that is convenient for you.

Compensation (New York Participants Only) :

$10/hour for behavioral studies
