Research In Action
Below are images taken from actual study visits to give you a look into our data collection. Testing for audiological and behavioral tasks takes place in our double-walled sound booths. EEGs are run in our lab and MRIs* are run in the Cincinnati Children's Imaging Research Center.
*MRIs not pictured as electronics are not allowed in the scanning room
A research coordinator secures a probe in a participant’s ear and runs a test using a clinical instrument to measure her middle ear movement.
Participants complete behavioral tests that measure attention, working memory, executive function, language, and processing speed.
The majority of pictures on this page were taken at the Listening Lab Summer Camp. To collect data for the SICLiD project we encouraged as many participants as possible to enroll in a two-day testing session. We were able to run up to 6 children through all 8-10 hours of testing during one of the several weeks of camp each summer.
A participant has his hearing tested. During this audiogram he responds to auditory stimuli by pressing a clicker.
Electrode gel is put into a participant’s EEG cap to facilitate detection of electrical impulses, and another participant displays the cap once it has been fitted.
