Title/Position
Professor
My research broadly concerns how people recover the meaning of spoken language as it unfolds in real-time, and in particular how they cope with the vast amount of variability in the speech signal. To this end, we use techniques like head-mounted eye-tracking, event-related potentials and inter...

A high concentration of free ionic zinc in synaptic vesicles is a prominent feature of some of the excitatory pathways in the mammalian forebrain. Despite the wealth of information on its distribution, and role in metalloenzymes and proteins, the role of vesicular zinc remains enigmatic, and serves...

Karin Hoth, PhD, ABPP

Title/Position
Associate Professor
Dr. Hoth is a board certified clinical neuropsychologist with expertise in aging and cognitive changes associated with chronic medical illnesses. She received her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Iowa and completed both her pre-doctoral internship and a two-year fellowship in...
Inyong Choi

Inyong Choi, PhD

Title/Position
Associate Professor
Dr. Inyong Choi studies neural mechanisms of auditory processing, specifically as it applies to how the human brain segregates a target sound from a mixture of interfering sounds, how the ability degrades in hearing-impaired listeners, and how hearing interventions recover such neural processes...
James Traer

James Traer, PhD

Title/Position
Assistant Professor
My research seeks quantitative models which “hear the world like a human”, that is, models which explain and predict human behavior in ecologically relevant listening tasks (i.e. scene analysis, localization, size and distance estimation, etc.). These models demonstrate the perceptual importance of...

Jeremy Greenlee, MD

Title/Position
Professor
My research focuses on the cortical mechanisms subserving human language and vocalization. Major goals of the research are to understand the representation of self-vocalization stimuli in primary and associated auditory cortices, elucidate and characterize the cortico-cortical interactions between...
Kirill Nourski

Kirill Nourski, MD, PhD

Title/Position
Associate Professor
I work in the Human Brain Research Laboratory with a team of neurosurgeons and neuroscientists, studying neurosurgical epilepsy patients who undergo electrode implantation for clinical diagnostic purposes. This provides a unique opportunity for direct electrophysiological recordings from the human...
Curtu

Rodica Curtu, PhD

Title/Position
Professor
Dr. Curtu's research combines methods from nonlinear dynamical systems with computer simulations and statistical methods to study the dynamics of neuronal networks induced by the properties of local network components, by the properties of the coupling, by the network topology, and by the stimulus...
YoungS

Samuel M. Young, PhD

Title/Position
Associate Professor
My laboratory is focused on the fundamental question– “How do synapses enable neuronal circuits to transmit a wide diversity of information?” Outcomes from our work will define the molecular principles that govern how synaptic properties drive neuronal circuit output which underpins organism...
GreenS

Steven H. Green, PhD

Title/Position
Professor
We study the molecular and cellular mechanisms by which neuronal survival and synaptogenesis are regulated by neural activity. For studies of survival, we principally use spiral ganglion neurons (SGNs) in the cochlea. SGNs are dependent on their presynaptic input, the hair cells, for their survival...
