Applied Auditory Research Facility

The Applied Auditory Research Facility is composed of several research laboratories in which students and faculty work on applied research projects. There are three laboratories and each laboratory is furnished with state-of-the-art equipment and facilities. Each of the laboratory facilities is used for both instruction and research.

Applied Psychoacoustics Laboratory

The Applied Psychoacoustics Laboratory is used to investigate sound localization and binaural processing in children and adults with normal hearing and in individuals with hearing loss. The research conducted in this lab has been funded by the National Institutes of Health, Deafness Research Foundation, National Organization for Hearing Research and a private donation from Margaret Reed.

Auditory Electrophysiology Laboratory

The Auditory Electrophysiology Laboratory is used to investigate cortical event-related potentials.

Auditory Diagnosis and Rehabilitation Laboratory

The Auditory Diagnosis and Rehabilitation Laboratory is used for investigating a broad range of areas including:

  • hearing aids
  • assistive listening devices
  • central auditory processing disorders
  • otoacoustic emissions, and
  • video nystagmography. 

Aspects of research completed in this laboratory have been funded by the Deafness Research Foundation.

Aphasia Research Laboratory

The Aphasia Research Laboratory investigates all aspects of aphasia, with a particular emphasis on the effectiveness of various treatments for the disorder.

Current projects are focused on word-finding problems in aphasia.
