Aravind Parthasarathy joins the lab

October 10, 2015

Aravind carried out his dissertation work with Dr. Ed Bartlett at Purdue. He studied changes in auditory temporal processing due to age-related hearing loss, using a variety of invasive and non-invasive neurophysiological measures in an animal model of aging. He joined MEEI to further explore how age-related synaptic damage affects auditory temporal processing, and to translate these findings into non-invasive diagnostic tests that can be used in the clinic. He also feels very uncomfortable talking about himself in the third person, but he is going to do it anyways, because social...
