We are seeking children in grades 2nd through 6th to participate in a study of the brain during reading activities. Children of all reading abilities (including those who struggle) are welcome to participate in fun language games and safe, non-invasive brain imaging as part of this cutting-edge scientific research.

Selected participants get a $100 Amazon gift card (cool!) and a copy of their brain scan (super cool!).
