Mickael Deroche, Ph.D.
I am an auditory psychophysicist studying normal and pathological hearing and the ensuing communication deficits across the lifespan. There are two aspects of the auditory system that I am particularly interested in: 1) its development in the early years of native language acquisition and 2) its collapse under degradations in sensory input (cochlear implant patients). Degradations in auditory input are also prevalent during normal aging and are associated with cognitive decline, dementia, and social isolation in seniors. My overarching goal is to find ways to compensate for hearing damage.
