• lab mission

    The Lab investigates the functional organization and plasticity of the cerebral cortex, with special emphasis on the neural substrates of audition in humans and nonhuman primates. Research follows three general themes: processing streams in audition (space and objects; music and speech); brain reorganization in tinnitus; and cross-modal plasticity in the blind. Experimental techniques emphasized are in-situ electrophysiology and functional magnetic resonance imaging.
