Welcome to NCRAC

The Northern Centre for Research on Aging and Communication (NCRAC) is a psychology lab at Nipissing University.  We investigate factors that influence how younger and older adults process and understand speech.  We also study how human development, including changes in hearing, vision, and cognitive function (e.g., selective attention and working memory) influence our ability to understand speech and written language.

You can help!

If you live in the North Bay area and are a younger adult between the ages of 18-29 or an older adult age 60+, you can volunteer to participate in our research.  Please click CONTACT US here or at the top of the page for further details.
