Welcome!

Welcome to the ANEx Lab at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign! Our research focuses on the development of the human auditory brain, over the course of both the individual and species lifetime. We study how experience with the acoustic environment, including acoustic communication (i.e., speech), shapes the auditory brain and affects our perceptual capabilities. One current focus is on premature infants–a vulnerable population whose premature birth and abnormal early auditory/sensory experience can put them at risk for cognitive deficits. Another focus is on extended high-frequency hearing loss–a common condition we each have or likely will experience as we age. To find out more, please visit our Research page.
