Research conducted by our faculty addresses fundamental elements of hearing, speech and language centered around three main themes: auditory and language cognitive neuroscience, developmental and educational sciences, and habilitative and rehabilitative sciences. State-of-the-art cognitive, behavioral and neuroscience techniques are used to study speech, language and hearing components of human communication. Our numerous research laboratories provide faculty with opportunities to advance research in their particular areas of focus.
Xin Luo's research focuses on the basic mechanisms of pitch perception in acoustic and electric hearing to develop novel sound processing strategies that can enhance speech and music perception for cochlear implant users.
