Researchers at Vanderbilt Need Adult Participants for a Study to Improve Hearing and Balance Tests

Researchers at Vanderbilt are conducting a study to improve a common clinical test of balance. Healthy adults between the ages of 18-39 without a history of balance problems are needed to participate.

The study will involve a short hearing test and then a test of balance, where you will listen to sounds while in a reclining position with your
head lifted up.

The purpose of the study is to improve a common clinical test of balance.
One visit of one-to-two hours is needed.Compensation will be provided at a rate of $25 per hour.
