My primary research interest is to study spoken word perception with EEG. I have been working on developing a novel paradigm based on short-term habituation, which serves as a tool to study the cognitive processing of spoken words in the pre-attentive processing stage. This paradigm has the potential to be developed into an electrophysiological index to measure the cortical functionality of speech perception and learning in adults, children, the elderly people, and the population with neurological or psychiatric diseases.

Research Focus


spoken-word perception


event related potential

auditory adaptation

auditory evoked potential

Clinical conditions

Language disorders
