Neurosensory sciences

The primary research objectives in neurosensory sciences are to identify neural correlates of psychoacoustically measurable performance of human hearing, and to develop innovative diagnostic tools.
The aim is to obtain knowledge on how hearing transforms the mechanical vibrations recorded by the ear to a percept.
Current topics include cochlear mechanics, loudness perception, pitch perception, amplitude and frequency modulation and sound localisation.
The clinical fields involve diagnostics and treatment for acute and chronic hearing impairment, dizziness and tinnitus.
