The Auditory Neuroscience Laboratory studies the changes in the brain that happen with auditory learning. We study speech and music processing in normal listeners throughout the lifespan, auditory experts (musicians; bilinguals), clinical populations (poor readers; autism; hearing loss), and an animal model.
