Auditory Electrophysiology Laboratory

Directed by Herbert Jay Gould, Ph.D., this laboratory conducts studies concerning the integrity of the auditory system at brainstem, mid brain and cortical levels. Studies are designed to distinguish patterns of electrical activity associated with speech perception in both normal and communication disordered children and adults.
