You will listen to target sounds such as tones or speech. The target sounds are often embedded in competing background sounds.  In some studies, we will ask you to indicate when you hear target sounds by pressing a visual icon on a computer screen or by raising your hand. In other studies, we will ask you to repeat back speech sounds that are presented.  Sounds are presented at comfortable levels and are not loud. A hearing screening will also be done at the time of your testing.

At the completion of the study, our lab members will be happy to have any questions you may have. You will be paid for your time. Payment is dependent upon length of study and activities completed.
