From the Executive Director
      By: Peggy Nelson

Happy new year, all!  2016 was a very active year in CATSS. We're grateful for all the scientific energy that's happening in the basement of Elliott Hall. More than a dozen different principal investigators were using CATSS facilities last year, from four different colleges, averaging a total of 38+ hours per week. We had four different external partners working with us this past year.

Among the new projects were:

      - Measurement of human response to infrasound
      - Use of cues by adults with TBI to interpret and process visuographic information
      - Discrimination and streaming of speech sounds

New proposals are already underway for 2017, including:

      - Detection and perception of sound by eagles and surrogate raptors (with the St. Anthony Falls Laboratory and the Raptor Center)
      - Effects of infrasound exposure on measures of endolymphatic hydrops (with Otolaryngology)

We've been featured in the MN Daily:

... and the CLA "Brighter U" program:

This spring I'll represent CATSS at the Arizona Minne-College in Scottsdale on Sat., Feb 25.

We're looking into the possibility of becoming a UMN internal/external sales organization in the coming year. We'll keep you up to date on that. If you have input on that process, please let us know. We're also investigating hosting a subject database, as that seems to be a common request of our investigators.

We hope you'll consider projects in CATSS in the coming year, or at least stop by for a visit. See you at the spring symposium!
