To uncover perceptual mechanisms of hearing and to investigate the interaction of perception and memory by conducting behavioural experiments.
The exchange student will join our research team in the psychoacoustics laboratories of the department of psychology. These laboratories are equipped with two sound-attenuating chambers, and high-quality digital signal-processing hardware, thus enabling the student to perform experiments on auditory perception / auditory memory without interference from extraneous sounds. Research in our laboratory focuses on the effects of noise, on laterality issues (left brain / right brain), on the perceptual evaluation of product sounds, on audio-visual orientation in virtual environments, and on the associative learning of emotions. The exchange student will learn to conduct his/her own experiment with human participants in one of these domains, analyze the data, and write a report on the outcome.
Two IREP student(s) can work on this project.
