Sakano Lab

Welcome to the Sakano Lab

Our ability to “hear” involves complex processing in the central nervous system of sound information that is detected in the ear. This processing allows us to localize sound sources, understand speech, discriminate speech in noise, and adapt to changes in auditory input. The auditory brainstem is involved in much of this processing of sound information before it is delivered to higher cortical regions of the brain. Our laboratory aims to elucidate some of the molecular mechanisms that are important for the function and development of the auditory brainstem nuclei.
