Auditory Prostheses and Perception Laboratory
We study auditory and speech perception by adults and children with normal hearing, hearing loss and cochlear implants. New studies are focusing on mechanisms underlying adult cochlear implant listeners’ and normally hearing listeners’ sensitivity to emotional prosody, particularly on aging effects on emotion perception. In children, new studies are focusing on the link between their perception and production of emotional prosody.

The APPL area includes two large sound booths for conducting listening tests in quiet environments, and a space in which experiments involving direct electrical stimulation of the implanted device are conducted.
