Authority for R & D Auditory Processing laboratory

Auditory Perception Lab

הדפסה דוא
נכתב ע"י Leah Fostick   

Auditory perception lab provides a framework for studying auditory processing in various populations. Current research is done on the response patterns of sequence perception, and the implication of central auditory processing and language, emphasizing temporal processing. Major research applications are in dyslexia, aging and sleep deprivation. The auditory processing lab is in the department of communication disorders, and is attached to the department's speech and audiology clinic. The lab was founded by Leah Fostick on 2008.

Auditory Temporal processing

Temporal processing refers to the human capacity to perceive stimuli presented rapidly one after the other. In the current framework we study the ability to perceive short auditory sequences (2 tones), to differentiate between different patterns of perception, and to study the effects of various factors on the perception, such as tone duration and frequency.

Speech perception

Speech perception is studied under the framework of temporal processing, and in relation to noise. Speech perception studies conducted in the Auditory Perception Lab focus on the origin of difficulties in speech perception among different populations, and the effect of environmental factors, such as different types of noise and levels, the use of hearing protection, sleep deprivation, and more.

Dyslexia

One of the major theories for the etiology of dyslexia is that it originates in a deficit in auditory temporal processing, mainly temporal order judgment (TOJ). Current studies in the Auditory Perception Lab are conducted in an attempt to understand the relationship between auditory temporal processing, dyslexia, and other cognitive abilities.

Aging

A common complaint among the elderly is difficulty in understanding spoken language, especially when the speech is fast or in the presence of background noise. The main theory explaining these complaints points to an age-related deficit in auditory temporal processing. In the Auditory Perception Lab we seek to understand the nature of this deficit and its relation to speech comprehension.

Sleep deprivation

Sleep deprivation affects various cognitive functions, among them functions which are controlled by the pre-frontal cortex. One of these functions is auditory temporal processing – mainly temporal order judgment (TOJ). Studies conducted in the Auditory Perception Lab attempt to understand the nature of TOJ deficit in sleep deprivation, and its relationship with other TOJ related deficits.
