Our lab's research is in the field of Cognitive Neuroscience and is focused on understanding the neural bases of auditory information processing in adults and children.
- We use non-invasive recordings of human brain activity (event-related potentials [ERPs]) in conjunction with behavioral performance measures, to investigate the processes and brain structures that contribute to the organization, storage and perception of a coherent sound environment.
