The Binaural Hearing Lab, led by Dr. Justin Aronoff, investigates the benefits and limits of cochlear implants, particularly for those who have two cochlear implants. Both basic and translational research is done in the lab, focusing on how information is combined across the two ears and how the distorted signal provided by the cochlear implants impact a cochlear implant users’ voice.
Minimum time commitment in hours per week: 3 hours
