Sandra joins the lab for a nine month research project as a Bertarelli Fellow. She is currently pursuing a Master's degree in Bioengineering at EPFL (Switzerland). During her time in the lab, Sandra will study cortical sound processing following peripheral and central rescue.
The Lauer Tinnitus Research Center coordinates and enables the research efforts for a talented cadre of clinicians and scientists as they search for new biomarkers and treatment strategies for this common, debilitating disorder. We are proud to be a part of this exciting effort!
The MIT Health Sciences and Technology program hosts an annual forum where graduate and medical students from various labs across the MIT and Harvard communities present their work. Our own Jonathon Whitton, Au.D. won the best poster award in the category of Biomedical Devices this year.
Last week Wei presented, "Layer 6 corticothalamic neurons modulate the gain and selectivity of columnar sound processing" as a poster presentation at APAN and SfN in Chicago. Wei was awarded the APAN travel grant award. Congratulations, Wei!
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...
Norbert joins the lab for a nine month research project as our second Bertarelli Fellow. He is currently pursuing a Master's degree in Life Sciences and Technologies at EPFL. Here in the lab, Norbert will explore building an auditory video-game for rehabilitation purposes.
Blaise joins the lab for a nine months research project as a Bertarelli Fellow. He is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Optical Engineering at EPFL (Lausanne, Switzerland). During his stay in the lab, Blaise will study the experience-dependant influences on auditory circuits.
