The Auditory Neuroscience Laboratory is focused on auditory perception, particularly spatial perception, attentive processing, and neural plasticity. These questions are studied with computational models and by running human behavioral experiments and neural imaging experiments (electro-encephalography or EEG). The laboratory consists of three rooms, two of which are devoted to behavioral and computational studies (housing special-purpose signal processing and sound generating equipment, electromagnetic head-tracking systems, a two-channel spectrum analyzer, and other miscellaneous equipment for producing, measuring, analyzing, and monitoring auditory stimuli). A third room houses a 128-channel EEG system, along with additional control hardware for auditory signal generation and presentation.
