SPaCE – Sensory Perceptual and Cognitive Ecology
The Sensory, Perceptual, and Cognitive Ecology (SPaCE) Center is an active research center funded by grants from NIH and NSF. We study the sensory, perceptual and cognitive abilities of deaf individuals over the lifespan, from infancy to adulthood. Our guiding philosophy is that deaf individuals are not just passively transformed by their deafness; they also actively engage with and shape their environments.
SPaCE promotes transparent ("open") science in an accessible environment free from harassment and judgment that allows all individuals to achieve their learning goals and desired employment outcomes. We encourage all interested students, staff and faculty to engage with us and learn more about what we do.
NTID SPACE is able to assist individuals and organizations by providing test scoring for the ASL Sentence Reproduction Test (Hauser et al., 2008). Our scorers have received extensive training on both ASL-SRT administration and scoring from Prof. Peter Hauser and his colleagues. Our rates for the 2021-2022 academic year are as follows:
- Federally sponsored research $60/test
- Others $90/test
Please contact our Staff Assistant if you have questions.
The SPaCE Center is offering course NDLS 285 which provides research experience to undergraduates.
The NTID SPaCE Center is always looking to grow. We are currently seeking applicants to fill several open positions.
