Volunteers Needed for a Research Study on Hearing Sensitivity; pays $7 per hour
Our laboratory is seeking volunteers for a study to develop new tools with which to evaluate human hearing. If you have normal hearing in at least one ear, you can see a ¼" dot on a computer screen from 3' away, and you are comfortable wearing earbuds, please contact the laboratory of Professor Terry Takahashi in the Institute of Neuroscience at the University of Oregon (please email Avinash or Terry)
How to sign up:
- During an experiment, you will be asked to wear earphones (used exclusively by you) and stare at a computer monitor without blinking for 4-5 seconds. When prompted, you simply indicate whether or not you heard a sound presented over the earphones. That’s all. An experiment lasts 45-60 min.
- The risks of participating in our experiments are minimal. At no time will the loudness of the sounds be louder than an ordinary, quiet conversation. You might develop a slight headache or eye fatigue from prolonged concentration, as you might during an exam. These symptoms are likely to be very short-lived. You may, however, stop the sessions at any time, without penalty.
- The data that we gather from you is strictly confidential. Your name or other identifier will never be used in any publication or report. Your information will only be released with your consent.
- You will receive $7 for a session, so you can get rich while you help science!
