UC Irvine Seeking CI Users for Research
I’m sharing this message from a graduate student at UC Irvine Hearing and Speech Lab, who is looking for cochlear implant users for his research. You won’t have to do much except sit there with a funky sensor cap on (see image below), and will be paid $10 an hour plus gas mileage:
The purpose of this study is to investigate how the head shapes electrical fields produced by cochlear implants. The aim is to help improve medical devices that use electrical stimulation to treat hearing-related and various neurological disorders (e.g. Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy).
