Neurotechnology and Neuroplasticity Lab

In the Neurotechnology and Neuroplasticity Lab we investigate how the brain stores and retrieves memories. Topics currently under investigation include spatial cognition, the effects of alcohol, stress, depression, exercise on the brain and memory, the role of hippocampal neurogenesis in memory, and auditory cortical plasticity and reorganization after hearing loss. We use a combination of computational modelling and empirical studies to investigate the neural bases of learning and memory. We are applying our research discoveries to the development of neurally inspired hearing assistive devices and brain-computer-interfaces.
