Seeking Participants for a Text Message Study

Investigator: Dr. Lyn Turkstra, School of Rehabilitation Science, McMaster University

Student Investigator: Imad Ali, McMaster University

Seeking adults with traumatic brain injury (TBI) for an online research study. The purpose of this study is to learn how people with TBI interpret moods, attitudes, and intentions in text message conversations.

The research could help develop technology to make text-based communication easier for people with TBI and other brain injuries.

You are eligible for the study if you

  • Have a diagnosis of TBI

  • Are age 18-40 years

  • Self-identify as a native English speaker

  • Can comfortably read text messages on whatever device you use

  • No reported history of a diagnosis of language or learning disability or neurological disorder affecting the brain, other than the TBI (e.g., no history of stroke)

The study has two parts: an online task portion and a Zoom meeting portion. Both parts will take place online and take about 30 minutes each. After completing both parts of the study, you will earn a $10 Tim Horton’s e-gift card in your email.
