The Mehta lab focuses on the perception and neural representation of pitch and its various properties in normal-hearing listeners as well as understanding the limitations of pitch perception in cochlear implants. We use behavioral and neurophysiological measures (EEG and fMRI) to probe the neural encoding of pitch, especially in adverse listening conditions. The lab’s research also investigates the value of conveying pitch using visual cues incorporated in closed captioning for listeners with cochlear implants.
