About This Lab
The Auditory Physiology & Psychoacoustics Research Lab (APPL) is dedicated to studying the functional development of hearing in children. The lab conducts fundamental and clinical studies on various types of pediatric hearing losses. Our main mission is to improve detection and diagnosis of specific types of hearing loss and find proper management for children with hearing loss.
The laboratory conducts studies on children with Auditory Processing Disorders, Auditory Neuropathy Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, inner ear malformations, Friedreich Ataxia, late-onset hearing loss and rare auditory disorders. Techniques available at the lab allow for the assessment of the cochlear function and its regulation by efferent pathways and for the recording of evoked potentials from the brainstem up to the auditory cortex.
