Yi Du, Ph.D.

My research uses a combination of different neuroimaging techniques (fMRI, MEG and EEG) to investigate the cognitive and neural basis of human speech comprehension, with special emphasis on interaction between auditory “what”, “where” and “how” neural pathways that engages in encoding sound identity, spatial location, and sensorimotor integration, respectively. I am also interested in the brain plasticity associated with aging and musical training experience when processing speech stimuli. My current project at McGill University and BRAMS focuses on the brain mechanisms underlying musicians’ expertise in speech perception by testing the hypothesis that strengthened auditory-motor integration function related with musical training can be transferred and benefit speech perception, especially in noisy environments.
