The research conducted in the ‘Sensory Optimisation Using Neuroscience for Devices’ (SOUND) Laboratory looks at understanding sound perception, the impact of neuroplasticity on auditory discrimination, and clinical interventions to optimise outcomes with hearing devices. Our research is funded by a Medical Research Council Senior Fellowship in Hearing Research.
Our research complements the activities of the other collaborators in the Cambridge Hearing Group.
