Research: My PhD-project addresses the question to what extent the human brain is able to influence acoustic perception via attentional processes already on the level of the acoustic receptor – the cochlea. For this purpose, I utilize both electrophysiological methods (M/EEG) and acoustic recordings from inside the ear canal to gain new insights which correlations/interactions between brain and cochlear activity exist. Insights that arise from this project will help to better understand the human auditory system and to develop better fitted hearing aids.
