Welcome to the ANEx Lab at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign! Our research focuses on the development of the human auditory brain and speech perception skills across a variety of populations. We aim to discover how experience with our environment shapes the auditory brain and affects our perceptual capabilities. For example, 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.
