Thank you for visiting the website for the Cochlear Implant Brain and Behavior Lab at UConn. The focus of our Lab is to improve the ability of cochlear implant listeners to understand speech. We do so by comparing performance between behavioral tasks and similar tasks using auditory evoked potentials. We aim to obtain a greater understanding of how the auditory brain changes with different sounds and how this affects behavioral auditory perception. We also compare results of normal hearing individuals to those with cochlear implants and examine the effects of age, changing CI device parameters, background noise, and listening effort
