Past the auditory canal, through the eardrum and beyond the cochlea is where you will find the research of Laurel Carney, Ph.D., acclaimed professor of biomedical engineering. Carney’s research focuses on the complex network of auditory nerve fibers that transmit the inner ear’s electrical signals to the brain with the goal of better hearing aids. Her research combines neurophysiological and behavioral studies with computer modeling in an effort to develop hearing aids that make human speech louder and clearer. In June 2015, she earned the William and Christine Hartmann Prize in Auditory Neuroscience from the Acoustical Society of America. And on January 22, the University of Rochester formally installed her as the Marylou Ingram Professor in Biomedical Engineering.
