Brief description In the normal process of hearing, the brain actively selects sounds of interest from competing background sounds. This normal auditory function is indispensible for children and adults to cope in non-optimal listening environments, however the mechanisms by which such performance is achieved are poorly understood. This project will investigate the nerve circuits that enable this to occur and will also investigate how these circuits malfunction in various types of partial deafness. The results will improve our understanding of how we detect sounds and the impact of hearing pathologies on this process.
