Dr Debi Vickers at the SOUND Lab at Cambridge Addenbrookes Hospital is looking for your help!
You could receive a £10 token or an invitation to join the 3rd International Music and Cochlear Implant Symposium which will be held in Cambridge on September 15th and 16th 2021...what a great opportunity to share your experiences with researchers and clinicians!
Debi is looking at the experience of listening to music with a cochlear implant and would love to hear from people who do not like to listen to music as well as from people who do. The results will help us to understand and make recommendations, provide training, and look at ways to set up cochlear implants to help people who would like to listen to music with their cochlear implant.
How can I get involved?
You can get involved in 2 ways:
- A short experiment*: complete a questionnaire and play a quick pitch game. This will take approximately 30 minutes in total. Upon completion of the experiment, a token payment of £10 will be given to participants (UK citizens only).
- Share your story of listening to music with CI: just submit a short video testimonial clip (1-5 minutes) before June 15th 2021. Your experiences will be valuable to cochlear implant researchers (more details here)
If you upload a video you might be invited to join us at the 3rd International Music and Cochlear Implant Symposium which will be held in Cambridge on September 15th and 16th 2021. Due to COVID restrictions, the event will be held with a mixture of online and in-person participants so you can attend in whichever way you prefer. Travel grants will be offered if attending in person.
It is a great privilege to be hosting this event in the UK and we hope that some of you will want to get involved.
