Auditory Perception and Processing Lab

Dr. Christian Stilp's research lab at the University of Louisville. The Auditory Perception and Processing (APP) Lab examines the roles of acoustic and statistical predictability and unpredictability on auditory perception, especially perception of speech, learning new sounds, segmenting sounds from the background, and improving how hearing aids and cochlear implants work.

Our lab explores how and why auditory perception works, addressing a number of questions that are important for everyday hearing: How do we learn and recognize new sounds? How does experience shape our ability to distinguish sounds? How do we understand speech? Which acoustic properties are most important for perception? What principles of neural organization and computation underlie these abilities?
