‘Auditory Cognition’ group at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences

Starting in January 2014, I’ve begun working in the ‘Auditory Cognition’ research group at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig, Germany. Led by Dr. Jonas Obleser, the group’s research focuses on investigating the neural mechanisms through which the auditory sense is able to decode and encode information in our environment, and on understanding how the brain deals with various degredations of the auditory signal, such as those that occur during noisy listening situations or with hearing impairment. My research in particular will focus on the neural basis of perceptual grouping in audition and the role which goal-directed behaviors play in these processes.
