Susan Nittrouer, Ph.D.
This study is being done to see if presenting a signal through a vibrating disk on the back of the wrist helps to better understand sentences processed using a cochlear implant simulation. We will check your hearing and then you will be asked to listen to sentences over headphones or over a speaker at a comfortable listening level, and to repeat what you heard. While listening to some of the sentences, you will wear a vibrating disk on your wrist or hand, that vibrates in a similar way to a smart watch. The session will be audio-video recorded while you do this activity, to help with scoring.
Participants will receive $15 cash or one unit of extra credit for participating, as well as a parking voucher if needed.
Listeners between the ages of 18 and 30, with normal hearing, who learned English as a first language.
Estimated Duration of Experiment
This study will take one hour.
