Austin Kern presents at Fall Frontiers

Undergraduate Austin Kern presented a first look at some new data at the Fall Frontiers in Undergraduate Research. Austin examined the perception of emotion in speech as part of the temporal dynamics project which aims to build a computational model of electrophysiological responses to emotional prosody. He found that target Happy sentences were frequently categorized as Neutral, even though Happy […]

IBaCS Seed Grant: Modeling auditory perception in the individual brain

The NIDL Lab, along with Chi-Ming Chen (Translational Research and Neural Stimulation Lab) and Ed Large (Music Dynamics Lab) has received an IBaCS seed grant award  to support our efforts to build computational models of auditory processing that will incorporate neurochemistry to generate predictions of individual behavior and electrophysiology! When you hear a sound, some populations of neurons fire in […]
