Behavioral Contributions to Speech Perception in Normal Hearing Adults
The University at Buffalo (UB) Department of Communicative Disorders and Sciences is looking for adult volunteers for an in-person study. The goal of this study is to investigate how adults understand speech in both quiet and noisy backgrounds.
This study involves up to 3 in-person visits (lasting between 1 to 2 hours) on the UB South Campus (on Main Street and Bailey Avenue). Participation will include the completion of surveys, cognitive tests to see how well the brain is functioning, and listening to sounds and making responses. Participants will be compensated for their time.
This is an experimental study that will examine individual and age-related differences in the perceptual mechanisms that contribute to speech recognition in human adults. Participants will listen to sounds and make responses using a computer keyboard and mouse. The results of this research will provide a better understanding of the relationship between individual's ability to process particular ac
