Project summary

Jennifer is a sensory neuroscientist whose goal is to understand how neural activity in auditory cortex underpins our perception of a sound scene. By combining electrophysiological and behavioural approaches Jennifer aims to explore how the activity of single neurons and neural populations results in sensory discrimination. Jennifer's current research explores how and when visual information influences auditory perception, and how visual signals alter activity in auditory cortex.
