Laurel Carney (BME) w/ Joyce McDonough awarded NIH-NIDCD "Auditory Processing of Complex Sounds"
Professor Laurel Carney recieved a renewal for another five years for her NIH-NIDCD grant entitled "Auditory Processing of COmplex Sounds." The new emphasis for the next five years is to investigate neuroal coding of speech sounds, startiing with vowels. This new direction is possible thanks to the collaboration with Professor Joyce McDonough from the Linguistics Department. This grant will support graduate students and a post-doc in BME, Linguistics, or related fields who are interested in speech coding in the brain.
