Learning and Plasticity for Auditory Perception

Date: 
Wed, 06/03/2015 - 5:00pm - 6:00pm
Location: 
CCRMA Seminar Room
Event Type: 
Hearing Seminar
How do we adapt to the world around us? Adaptation is common for all of us, but especially important for patients that get cochlear implants. Many grew up hearing normally, but due to trauma have to make do with a wires that electrically stimulate the hair cells of the cochlea. This a very primitive approach that yields impressive result. But the resulting perceptions are nothing like what the patient is used to hearing.

How is it that the brain learns how to process new stimuli? And what can we do to make it easier for an individual? Dr. Matt Fitzgerald is a new member of the Stanford community. I’m happy to learn more about his work and to welcome him to the Stanford Hearing Community.

Effects of cognitive load on perception

Date: 
Fri, 05/29/2015 - 11:30am - 12:30pm
Location: 
CCRMA Seminar Room
Event Type: 
Hearing Seminar
How is it that we recognize audio, in impoverished environments?  How does our cognitive state, and the load our brains are suffering under, effect how we perceive and understand audio? Speech gives us a convenient model to talk about syntax, but the same considerations probably apply to music.  While this talk describes a speech paradigm, I believe it applies to all forms of auditory perception. 

   Who: Sven Mattys (University of York, UK)
   What: Effects of cognitive load on perception
   When: May 29, 2015 at 11AM
   Where: CCRMA Seminar Room
   Why: Because perception depends on cognition
