Submitted by: Scott Novich | Email: | URL:

What: The Eagleman Laboratory at Baylor College of Medicine is developing a vest that converts sound to patterns of vibration on the torso. This is designed to give deaf people a sense of hearing through touch.

Who: We are seeking participants with profound hearing loss who are (1) between the ages of 18-65, (2) not born deaf, and (3) without cochlear implants.

Where: Baylor College of Medicine, 1 Baylor Plaza, Houston, TX, 77030. Contact Scott Novich at novich[at]bcm[dot]edu.

Compensation: This study pays $460 upon completion. If you do not complete the study, you will be paid a pro-rated amount of $30/session. The total of $460 equals payment for 12 sessions plus a $100 completion bonus. Sessions are run once per day and last approximately 30-60 minutes.

Contact: Individuals interested in participating may contact Scott Novich: novich[at]bcm[dot]edu
