Researchers at the Epley Center for Health Professions and the Exercise Science Research Center are seeking young adults to participate in a non-invasive research study involving the simulation of hearing loss and completion of basic tests of cognition on an iPad. Participants will have their name entered into a drawing for one of three $100 gift cards to be awarded at the end of the study. Participants must complete the study (2 separate meetings, around 1 hour each) to have their name entered into the drawing. Participants are not eligible to win more than one gift card for participating.

Researchers are looking for people aged 18-35 with normal hearing to participate. Participants are required to complete a hearing screening and case history form as well as assessments on an iPad.
