Research Opportunity for Adult Cochlear Nucleus Implant Users

April 1, 2013 in Community News, Employment, Research


Research Opportunity for Adult Cochlear Implant Users 
Seeking Individuals in Maryland, Virginia and D.C.

The Dept. of Hearing, Speech, and Language Sciences at Gallaudet University is seeking adult CI users who are fluent in spoken English and who use a Cochlear Corporation (Nucleus) device to participate in a study of speech understanding and listener experience with MAP adjustments (i.e. frequency distribution changes based on user input).

Your participation may involve a couple visits over a 4-6 week time span. You will complete speech understanding tasks and compare sound quality, intelligibility, and preference for various MAP adjustments. MAP adjustments will be made on a device that we provide you (and never on your own personal device). You may also be asked to complete a trial period with your chosen frequency adjusted MAP. Finally, you will complete questionnaires about your experience.

Participants will be compensated $12/hour. This study has been approved by Gallaudet’s IRB. If you are interested in participating please contact: join@hearingresearch.org
