Research Specialization Areas - Auditory Physiology

The study of auditory physiology provides the foundation for understanding mechanisms that support auditory perception and communication. Knowledge of both normal and impaired auditory systems allows for the development of potential habilitative or rehabilitative interventions, which are fundamental to translational science. We build upon well-established principles of both peripheral and central auditory physiology, using innovative approaches in animal and human models (e.g., otoacoustic emissions, auditory brainstem response, electroencephalography, brain mapping, functional near-infrared spectroscopy) to expand our knowledge of auditory function and the important role it plays in everyday communication.
