Auditory Processing and Neuroprostheses
We use dynamic clamp and iso-response techniques to study auditory coding. In parallel, we investigate visual influences on auditory processing. Using results from on auditory performance in reverberant environments (e.g., in rooms), these projects improve techniques for directly stimulating the auditory nerve and the design of coding strategies for cochlear implants and help elucidate age-related changes in spatial hearing. Advances in the development of methods and scientific integration are applied to understand biological mechanisms, which in turn support clinical investigations and technological innovations to be spearheaded by our industry partner MED-EL.
