Cognitive Neuroscience of Communication and Hearing Lab
About the Lab
Members of the Cognitive Neuroscience of Communication and Hearing Lab use psychophysical and neuroimaging methods such as fMRI and EEG to study the neural basis of hearing; particularly how the brains of listeners transform the noisy and variable sounds of everyday conversations into meaningful language. The group is also exploring how the brain develops expectations about what it will hear, and how these expectations influence perception. Another line of research is exploring the potential of novel functional-imaging based methods for evaluation of subtle brain abnormalities in epilepsy, concussion and other brain disorders.
