About us

Our lab is situated in the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics at Oxford University. We are interested in explaining common auditory sensations, such as sound localisation, at a neurobiological level.



In the developed world, hearing loss is the most common sensory disability, with around 15% of the population classified as deaf or hard of hearing. Critical to the treatment of hearing loss in later life is the discovery that the mature brain remains plastic, enabling perceptual abilities to be adjusted in response to changes in input. We seek to improve our understanding of the neural basis for auditory perception by investigating how sounds are represented and coded within the brain, while at the same time exploring the neural basis for the adaptive changes that allow humans and other species to interact successfully with their surroundings.
