Calling adults to take part in research by Oxford University, ‘Making Sense of Language’

Oxford University logo

Dr. Alexander Wilson and Prof. Dorothy Bishop, Department of Experimental Psychology at Oxford University are investigating how people make sense of language in context, especially in conversations. “We know that some people have particular difficulties with interpreting language, and in our research, we aim to understand more about the nature of those difficulties. We hope this understanding will be useful in facilitating and supporting communication for people who experience communication challenges in their day-to-day life.”

If you are over 18 years of age and speak English to native-level fluency, the study is looking to recruit three groups of people: individuals with a diagnosis of dyslexia; individuals with a diagnosis of autism; and individuals with no neurodevelopmental diagnosis.
