Research and Teaching Experience

Research Areas:

General sensory psychology, auditory psychophysics; binaural interaction of dichotic stimuli; studies of auditory masking of short duration stimuli; temporal discrimination; tactile psychophysics with electrocutaneous stimuli; ERG studies of monocularly light deprived animals; brain-language mechanisms; sleep deprivation; sleep disturbances and fatigue.

Brain and Language: We continue to study the relation between hemisphericity and written and spoken language . We have used a variety of language paradigms with visual and auditory with visual hemifield stimulation  by word and non-word stimuli  to help elucidate  brain-language mechanisms. We are presently studying brain event related potentials (ERP) to spoken language and comparing the responses to tonal stimuli. Behavioral and  EEG data are recorded. The latter are recorded from an array of scalp electrodes to test  various models of hemisphere dominance for processing verbal material. The effects of aging on ERP recordings to tonal and language stimuli in phonological and semantic tasks is presently underway.

Sleep deprivation, shift work and performance: Ther are several ongoing studies in the lab on sleep deprivation, sleep disruption, sleep inertia and night work schedules. We are presently studying the interaction of sleep deprivation and the circadian rhythm on a variety of perceptual and cognitive functions by behavioral and EEG measures. The emphasis is on the hypothesis that the pre-frontal lobes are especially sensitive to sleep loss. Another study  examines the time course of recovery from sleep inertia and the brain mechanisms involved. The latter study also examines the effect of aging on sleep inertia.

Aging and the auditory system:  Recently we published a study on the effects of aging on sound lateralization in the horizontal plane. We have extended the research on aging and the auditory system to include experiments on time resolution and temporal order judgments  in an effort to ascertain whether aging is associated with a general reduction in sensitivity for all auditory stimulus parameters or whether there are certain stimulus parameters that are especially sensitive to the aging process.   Initial work in this lab and in others seem to indicate that the temporal domain is more sensitive to aging than to other stimulus parameters.
