- Creating and validating a tunable test of cocktail-party listening
One of the primary long-term goals of the research group is to understand behavioural and neural factors that predict cocktail-party listening success on an individual-by-individual basis. The goal of this research project is to develop and ...
- Test–retest reliability of neural entrainment of the human auditory system
Brain rhythms synchronize with the rhythms in sounds with a phase lag that is consistent across trials within an experiment, but not necessarily consistent across people. Individual differences in this phase lag of neural entrainment have ...
