In this translational research laboratory, we study how auditory and cognitive abilities vary among individuals, and how hearing aid processing and other auditory treatment recommendations can be better customized for each person. Within this framework, our work addresses communication problems associated with hearing loss, with particular focus on hearing devices and clinical decisions.
