Welcome to the Auditory Aging site. The research lab is run by Björn Herrmann, a cognitive neuroscientist studying how we engage in listening and communication as we age.
Björn is a scientist at the Rotman Research Institute at Baycrest Hospital and an Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto, in Canada. His research spans from mechanistic neurophysiology to real-world listening experiences in the context of auditory aging.

NEWS & EVENTS
Model of Listening Engagement accepted
June 2, 2020
I am excited to report that the Model of Listening Engagement (MoLE) will soon appear in Hearing Research. Together with Ingrid Johnsrude, we explore the factors that contribute to whether or not a person engages in listening and speech comprehension. The pre-print version is already available.
Scientific Reports manuscript accepted
May 22, 2020
We just got the great news that our work got accepted. We report EEG and behavioral results showing different types of sensitivity to sound-level statistics: Dynamic range adaptation and prediction error. Have a look: BioRxiv
Starting the Auditory Aging Lab in Toronto
I am very excited to announce that I will start my own lab at the amazing Rotman Research Institute at Baycrest in the beginning of 2020. I will be looking for talented, creative, and motivated new lab members soon.
Undergraduate students should send Dr. Herrmann a CV, transcript, writing sample, as well as a short description of why they are interested in this area of research and the time commitment they are able to make.
