The Effect of Noise Exposure on the Vestibular System

We are seeking participants (ages 18-55) for a study investigating the impact of loud noise on the inner ear balance system. If you PLAN TO ATTEND A MUSIC EVENT, then you may be eligible to participate in the study.
Qualified participants will undergo hearing and inner ear balance testing before and after the music event. All testing is conducted at the Mountain Home VA Medical Center in Johnson City, TN. You will not be charged for any treatment or procedures that are part of this study. You will be compensated for your time during the study.
 If you are not attending an event where you will be exposed to loud noise, but are still interested in participating in research, check out our Subject Recruitment Registry!
