Study: Adaptation to spectral cue changes in spatial hearing in humans

Please note that we no longer accept new participants for this study. Thank you for your understanding.

The International Laboratory for Brain, Music, and Sound Research (BRAMS) is currently looking for participants aged between 18 and 35, with normal hearing, to take part in a spatial localization study.

The study consists in wearing ear silicon molds for approximately 10 days. During this period of time, the participant will be asked to come daily to the BRAMS to complete auditory localization tasks for 30 minutes. This experiment will be completed in the BRAMS hemi-anechoic room.

Individuals with auditory problems or using a cochlear implant cannot take part in the study. Individuals with ear piercings in areas other than earlobe (f. ex. conch, tracus), or with allergies to latex and silicon cannot participate either.

A monetary compensation will be offered, for an approximate total of 110$.

BRAMS is located in 1430 boul. Mont Royal, Université de Montréal, a mere few minutes from Édouard-Montpetit station.

If you are interested in taking part in this study, please send your family name, name, e-mail and phone number to Valerie: valerie.aubrais@hotmail.com
This study is conducted under the supervision of Marc Schoenwiesner, PhD (Université de Montréal).
