ACNE Group (7-15-10) Lg.jpg

 

 

The ACNE Lab addresses issues relating to the processing of complex acoustic signals such as speech, music, and other environmental sounds.  Current projects include examining how people learn the sounds of a 2nd language and how one’s native language can interfere with this learning; investigating the ability of listeners to “tune” their perception to the particular characteristics of a speaker (e.g., understanding someone with a foreign accent or disordered speech); and studying how the design of cochlear implants and hearing aids can affect the ability of listeners to understand speech in complex listening environments. This multidisciplinary lab works closely with researchers in Psychology, Linguistics, Neurophysiology, and Electrical Engineering.
