It's almost time to register and get housing for the Society for Neuroscience annual meeting in November! I'm excited to announce that Art Wingfield and I are co-chairing a symposium on hearing loss and the brain, Monday November 17th from 8:30-11:00am. We have a great line up of speakers addressing this topic from a variety of angles:
- Andy King (Oxford) will talk about animal electrophysiology and developmental consequences of hearing loss;
- Barb Shinn-Cunningham (Boston University) will talk about how hearing loss interferes with selective auditory attention;
- Paul Miller (Brandeis) will discuss computational approaches that link hearing loss to cognitive processing;
- and I will talk about cognitive consequences of hearing loss using behavioral and functional neuroimaging data from humans.
Here's the preliminary program description:
Hope to see you in Washington DC!
