Di Liberto-Lab for Auditory Cognitive Informatics

Our lab's interest centers on understanding the neural foundation of human communication. We develop neural data analysis methodologies based on machine learning and signal processing. Then, we apply those methodologies on neurophysiology brain data to better understand auditory communication and other aspects of human cognition. Those findings are then used to derive objective measurements of cognition, allowing us to conduct applied research on the causes, impact, and potential solutions of cognitive and communication deficits (e.g., hearing impairment, cognitive decline).
