Presentation by Dr. Karen Gordon

Auditory plasticity in children who are deaf and use cochlear implants to hear speech and music

Dr. Karen Gordon is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Otolaryngology and a Graduate Faculty Member in the Institute of Medical Science at the University of Toronto. She works at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, as a Scientist in the Research Institute and Director of Research in the Cochlear Implant Laboratory. She received her Ph.D. (2005) and B.Sc. (1991) at the University of Toronto and her M.A. in Audiology (1993) at Northwestern University. She is a registered audiologist (reg. CASLPO, CCC-A), a Fellow of the American Academy of Audiology (AAA), and a member of the Association for Research in Otolaryngology (ARO) and the Society of Ear, Nose and Throat Advances in Children (SENTAC).

Her research focuses on auditory development in children who have severe to profound hearing loss. She is investigating the effects of deafness along the auditory pathways and ask how auditory development might best be promoted through unilateral and bilateral cochlear implant use and by training. Current research funding has been awarded by the Canadian Institutes for Health Research, the SickKids Foundation, and the Hearing Foundation of Canada.
