We would like to invite you to our study investigating the efficacy of auditory training. You will be asked to undergo a few hearing and cognitive tests after which you will be enrolled in a “Training program” for 4 weeks.  Brain responses will be measured before and after the training sessions.

The tasks are completely harmless and non-invasive.

Requirements:

  Participants must have “English” as their native language and may have one of the following:

1) Participants who have difficulty in understanding speech in the presence of noise but otherwise have normal hearing

Listening in noise is something that occurs on a daily basis. However, individuals face difficulties in listening in such scenarios even in the absence of a hearing loss. We are trying to understand the cognitive, linguistic, and auditory factors that lie beneath the ability to perform well in noise.
