Hearing, Audition and Cognition

Hearing, Audition and Cognition

Hearing, Audition and Cognition Research Group

Within the Department of Cognitive Science, we have a number of researchers with interests in aspects of hearing, audition and cognition. This includes the relationship between cognitive processes and the way in which the human brain processes auditory information, as associated with hearing loss, hearing restoration and cognitive disorders.

The Department of Cognitive Science (including the researchers in the Hearing, Audition and Cognition Research Group) has recently relocated to the Australian Hearing Hub. The Australian Hearing Hub is a unique, world-class facility purpose-designed to facilitate collaborative research and teaching in hearing and related speech and language disorders. Our staff and students are uniquely placed to develop and build collaborations with other organisations and institutions also located in the Australian Hearing Hub, including: Australian Hearing, incorporating the National Acoustic Laboratories; implantation teams from Cochlear Limited and the Sydney Cochlear Implant Centre; as well as major not-for-profit organisations including The Shepherd Centre and the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children.
