Auditory Neuroscience Focus Area

The goal of the Auditory Neuroscience Group is to promote excellence in hearing research through a highly collaborative environment. The group currently uses molecular, cellular, systems, and behavioral/perceptual approaches to study mechanisms underlying normal hearing and related disorders.

The Auditory Neuroscience Group is committed to interdisciplinary training of postdoctoral fellows and graduate students that extends across our laboratories. Graduate training is in cooperation with the School of Biomedical Sciences and Department of Audiology at Kent State University. Please contact any of the faculty if you would like to join us.
