This single-session, approximately 3.5 hour-long study involves:

• EEG recordings – A cap with electrodes will be placed on your head in order to measure your brain activity.
• Exposure to light flicker and/or click sounds delivered at high frequencies
– You will be asked to sit in front of an LED panel with speakers and look at the panel while they output light and sounds that are meant to alter your brain activity.
