Do You Hear What I Hear?

This station is designed to interest students in understanding our system of auditory perception. The station also relates to the study of the brain, ear anatomy and cognitive/behavioral neuroscience, as it relates to hearing. These exercises are intended to engage student in a discussion regarding careers that involve auditory health (audiology, rehabilitative health, disabled care etc…) and research (neuroscience, physiology etc…).  This station includes four activities: 1. Ear Age Test 2. Tri-tone Paradox 3. McGurk Effect and 4. Vestibular Balancing.  A model of the human ear enables kids to see how complicated and delicate our hearing is.
