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. The study involves 2 separate meeting dates for data collection that are anticipated to last around 1 hour for each meeting. Confidentiality will be maintained for all data collected.

If you believe you meet these requirements and are at least 18 years of age please email  Rachel Glade ( to let her know that you would like to participate in the simulated hearing loss study. She will provide you additional information regarding what this study entails as well as how to schedule your participation.
