Hearing, Balance & the Brain

Researchers at the University and Medical Center have long been on the quest to understand hearing, balance, and the brain. Faculty from many disciplines like Neuroscience, Otolaryngology, Biomedical Engineering, Linguistics, and Brain and Cognitive Sciences aim to discover better drug-delivery methods and improve mechanistic and functional understandings of hearing, balance, and brain connection.
