I have been doing auditory research for nearly 40 years. My research focuses on auditory electrophysiology, including cochlear electrophysiology and central auditory electrophysiology. Recording ranges include the cochlea and classical and non-classical auditory centers such as the amygdala. My early work was investigating the mechanisms of normal auditory responses to simple and complex sounds, including human speech. Subsequent studies have focused on peripheral and central auditory changes caused by acoustic noise and ototoxic drugs and its protection. Cochlear histological and molecular biological methods are also commonly used in conjunction with electrophysiological studies. I have published more than 100 peer reviewed research papers.
