Researchers in the Language, Intersensory Perception, and Speech (LIPS) lab, in the department of psychological and brain sciences, are looking for adults between 45- and 60-years-old to volunteer for a study.
The Audiovisual Synchrony (AVSYNC) study tests how seeing a speaker talk can help aging listeners to continue to effectively understand spoken language.
Participants must be native speakers of American English. They will be paid $10 per hour for participating. The study will require a 2-hour visit and a 3-hour visit to the lab on campus.
The first lab visit includes various computerized tasks that assess hearing, vision, and judgments about what a speaker says. The second visit involves recording the participants’ brain waves with an EEG cap on their head while they watch and listen to a speaker.
If interested, please leave a message at (909) 547-5221 or email email@example.com.
Adults older than 65 years of age can visit the LIPS website to learn about how to stay informed about future research opportunities.
