<strong>Neural Encoding of Speech and Music and its Plasticity</strong>
The Auditory Neuroscience Laboratory investigates the neural bases of speech, music and learning-associated brain plasticity. We study normal listeners throughout the lifespan, clincical populations (poor-readers; autism; hearing loss), auditory experts (musicians) and animal models.
