Description

Participants wanted for a research study on how the brain processes different acoustic characteristics during speech and sound perception!

We are seeking native English speakers between the ages of 18-40 with no known hearing impairments and either 0 years of musical training or at least 6 years of musical experience.

This study is divided into 3 parts. Parts 1 and 2 will take place online at a quiet location of your choosing. Part 1 (20-25 minutes) will involve a series of tasks to measure your ability to discriminate and pay attention to different sounds. In Part 2 (30-40 minutes) you will listen to different sounds and decide whether each sound belongs to one category or another.

Part 3 will take place at Birkbeck, University of London (Bloomsbury) and will last approximately 2 hours. Electroencephalography (EEG) will be used to record your brain waves while you listen to streams of speech and non-speech sounds.

In total, this study will take up to 3 hours of your time and you will be reimbursed £30 (£10/hour).

If you are interested in this study, please send a message to the team and we will set up a brief telephone or Zoom interview so that we can ask you some questions about your music and language experience, and tell you a little bit more about the study.
