Research Focus

Early acoustic experience shapes the functional and physiological properties of cortical auditory circuits. I want to better understand how potassium currents affected by auditory experience influence the development of auditory processing. I am also interested in studying how genetic variants associated with dyslexia and other developmental language disorders influence the development of auditory processing by changing potassium currents and intrinsic dynamics.
