Research Interest

To understand the neural mechanisms of auditory communication in the forms of music and language, her team is using various approaches tapping into different stages of auditory pathway. To identify critical links between language and music in the auditory modality, she examines normal tone language speakers with or without musical training as well as tone language speakers who encountered musical disorders from children through the elderly.
