Research Focus

We study the development and function of the auditory cortex.

Ten percent of the human population suffers from auditory cortex disorders, yet we understand very little about its role in making sense of sounds. In our lab, we study the development and function of the auditory cortex. We use electrophysiology, imaging, optogenetics, and behavioral techniques. The results will give a new insight into the function of the auditory system and lead to new ways of reinstating normal connectivity in cases of abnormal signal processing.
