Research Project Investigating Reading Processes in Higher Education

Dear all,

I'm looking for native speakers of English with Dyslexia to take part in a Linguistics experiment. The team is investigating how reading processes are altered by one's emotional state. You will be asked to meet with the researcher for one single session which will take between 30 minutes and 1 hour to complete. You will complete 3 short reading based tasks whilst your heart rate is recorded. Every student who completes the study will be entered into a prize draw. It is hoped that the study could provide recommendations for fluent reading and intervention programmes.

What will you have to do if you take part?

  • We will arrange a time to meet which is convenient for you. It is proposed that this will be at Newcastle University, although alternative arrangements can be made.
  • You will participate in three short reading based tasks and answer a questionnaire.


 How do I sign up?

  • Please send an email to me to register your interest: o.k.outhwaite2@ncl.ac.uk
  • I will then contact you to provide some further details or to arrange your time slot.

Best wishes,

Olivia Outhwaite
