Adults needed for a hearing study

The Children’s Auditory Perception Laboratory is currently recruiting adults between 18 and 30 years old for a research study to help us learn more about how children hear.

During the testing, you will sit in a sound-treated room and will listen to sounds presented over a speaker or through headphones. You will be asked to indicate when you hear sounds by selecting a picture on a computer monitor, raising your hand or repeating speech. The sounds we use are not loud. 

One visit to the laboratory is required. The visit will be 1 to 1.5 hours long. You will receive $10 per hour.

If you are interested, please email childhear@colorado.edu or call 303-735-6252.

The principal investigator for this research study is Angela Yarnell Bonino, PhD, Department Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences. All testing will be completed in the Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences (SLHS) building on Main Campus.

Tomb figure from Western Mexico

"A Question of Life or Death: Renewing the Inquiry into the Shaft Tomb Figures of Western Mexico" Professor Chris Beekman, CU Denver

The ceramic effigies found in shaft tombs of West Mexico have been used as evidence of shamanistic obsession with the underworld, but Beekman will be discussing how recent excavations and analysis of museum collections have called this interpretation into question. 

This free, public lecture is presented in partnership with the Archaeological Institute of America. Seating is limited.
