Dr Bob Carlyon is pleased to consider applications from prospective PhD students.
My research has spanned a wide range of topics in human hearing, but has most recently focused on the problem of how we can listen to one voice in the presence of interfering sounds, such as other speakers. It incorporates behavioural and electrophysiological experiments with normal-hearing listeners, and studies of hearing by deaf patients fitted with a cochlear implant.
Electrophysiological recording techniques
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
