Drawing Sounds - Audio Image Study

We ask participants to meet with us to create visual representation with crayons and paper in response to sound clips. You are not required to be "good" at drawing in order to participate, and there will be no judgments of your drawings. You will listen to 30 short audio clips and then create a visual response. You will also answer a few questions about your perception. Most people complete the study in approximately 30 minutes. It is important for you to understand that all information collected will be confidential, and you may decide to stop participating at any time.
