The CDaCI Study is supported by a research grant [R01 DC004797] from the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  Publications resulting from research that has been funded by the NIH are required to be made publicly available as part of the NIH Public Access Policy (beginning mid-2008) and are posted on PubMed Central.  The open access version of a publication does not necessarily reflect the official journal formatting and typesetting.  In the below publications list, clicking on the journal name will take you to the official journal publication, which may or may not be freely accessible.  Clicking on the PMC number will take you to the freely available version.  For publications prior to the Public Access Policy's implementation, a PMID number is shown, which will take you to the article's abstract on PubMed. ​​

If you would like to request a copy of the official journal publication for any of the papers, please contact Christine Mitchell.
