The series of Advanced Topic classes are designed to introduce foundational issues in Hearing, Speech and Language Sciences. It is designed to explore theories, research methodologies and translation to clinical practice in each of the three areas. Students can expect to build a foundation of knowledge that can inform research in hearing, speech, and language sciences. The Hearing Science Course will focus on the anatomy, physiology and psychophysical (psycho-acoustics) bases of sound detection, discrimination and perception. The processing and perception of sounds (speech and non-speech) by a typical or atypical auditory system will be explored along with procedures, instrumentation and techniques employed in hearing science research.
