We examine the neurobiological computations that underlie speech perception and learning, using an interdisciplinary, computational, and lifespan approach.

From a clinical perspective, we hope to develop a richer understanding of the neurocognitive sources of individual differences in speech processing. We aim to develop optimized and neurobiologically-informed auditory training approaches for second language learning, learning impairments, and auditory processing deficits.

Bharath Chandrasekaran in labUsing cognitive neuroscience approaches (fMRI, DTI, cortical and subcortical EEG and computational modeling), we focus on:

1.  Understanding brain dynamics during speech perception in challenging listening environments

2.  Understanding the functional dynamics of neural circuitry underlying speech categorization.
