Performing Hearing Research Remotely
The COVID-19 pandemic forced many researchers in the fields of psychological and physiological acoustics to scramble to find new ways to perform hearing research that is traditionally done in the lab remotely. The Acoustical Society of America Technical Committee on Psychological and Physiological Acoustics launched the Task Force on Remote Testing ( in May 2020 with goals of surveying approaches and platforms available to support remote testing and identifying challenges and considerations for prospective investigators. In this episode, we discuss their findings with two of the co-authors of the resulting papers, Ellen Peng, of Boys Town National Research Hospital, and Erick Gallun, of Oregon Health and Science University. Associated papers:“Remote testing for psychological and physiological acoustics: Initial report of the P&P Task Force on Remote Testing,” Proceedings of Meetings on Acoustics (POMA) Z.
