My work examines how the brain processes sound
- How do enriched sensory experiences, such as playing a musical instrument or speaking multiple languages, influence the neural processing of sound?
- To what degree can enriched sensory experiences buffer the effects of auditory deprivation and trauma?
- How do enriched & impoverished sensory experiences early in life influence linguistic and cognitive function later in life.
- How does the brain's ability to faithfully encode sound influence language development in typical and atypical populations?
