Auditory perception and development

Perception, Cognition

Scientific expertise:

  • Auditory psychophysics, detection of pitch and intensity changes
  • Cortical and subcortical auditory evoked potentials
  • Auditory memory, context effects in the perception of auditory sequences
  • Auditory learning in multiple-hour training paradigms


  • Psychophysical studies of auditory enhancement
  • EEG studies of auditory enhancement
