Hearing and Balance Study Needs Subjects Age 40-70

Researchers at Vanderbilt are conducting a study to improve a common clinical test of balance.

Healthy adults between the ages of 40-70, 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 be listening to sounds while in a reclining position with your head lifted up.

One visit of 1-2 hours is needed.

 Compensation will be provided at a rate of $25 per hour.

 If you are interested in participating, please contact us at vubalance@gmail.com.

 Principal investigator: Gary Jacobson, Ph.D.
