Auditory Physiology Laboratory

The Audiology Physiology Lab at Vanderbilt University is directed by Dr. Linda Hood.  Our research focuses on understanding characteristics of hearing loss in infants, children and adults with particular emphasis on linking underlying auditory physiological processes to hearing ability. Dr. Hood’s research over the past 25 years has involved physiological/objective measures with publications on auditory brainstem responses, otoacoustic emissions, auditory neuropathy, and the efferent auditory pathways.
