Research Focus of the Laboratory:
Dr. Harris’ primary interest is in understanding the structure and function of the neural systems underlying age-related changes in auditory processing. In particular, her current research projects focus on exploring the relationship between age-related changes in attention and audition and the impact each system has on auditory temporal processing. To learn more about these systems her lab examines how changes in functional and structural imaging, as well as electrophysiological associations with changes in behavior. This research is supported by grants from the NIH/NIDCD.
