Participants needed for study of brain processing of sight and sound

Do you like computer tasks and want to help with research?

If you are:

♦ 18 years of age or older
♦ Have a cochlear implant or have normal hearing
♦ Have normal or corrected-to-normal vision and hearing (glasses or contacts are okay)
♦ A native English speaker

Then you may be eligible to participate. This research project looks at how the brain combines sights and sounds. Researchers hope to gain a better understanding of the differences between how sensory information is used in cochlear implant patients by comparing individuals with cochlear implants to normal-hearing individuals.

Those who participate in this study will be compensated for their time and effort.
