Hearing Instrument Lab

The Hearing Instrument Laboratory (HIL) is housed in South Stadium Hall. One sound-treated room is located in the HIL. Equipment is available to synthesize and generate sound digitally. Responses to sounds can be measured behaviorally, acoustically, or electroacoustically using commercial data acquisition systems and software. The HIL contains IBM-compatible computers plus related hardware. Software is available to carry out all current forms of data analysis. The HIL is connected to the University's mainframe computers via an Ethernet network.
