In the primary auditory cortex neighboring sound frequencies are processed by neighboring points in the brain – an orderly arrangement called tonotopy. Our lab uses high-resolution functional MRI at 7 Tesla to image the tonotopic organization of human primary auditory cortex, non-invasively and in only a few minutes, in volunteers with normal hearing and patients with auditory disorders.

Our current focus: human auditory cortex

Other topics: hearing-motion synesthesia

cross-sensory brain plasticity
