Hearing the World, Part 1: Lessons from the Brain and Blindness

October 21, 2020, 10:30 am

11:30 am

Scientists from the Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute will share fascinating facts about how our ears and brain work together to untangle the sounds around us, and how auditory abilities change with low vision or blindness. They will discuss their current research questions, work through examples with the audience, and invite attendees to take part in a real auditory science experiment being conducted online.

In a follow-up session, they will discuss some of the preliminary results in the context of research to advance our understanding of auditory perception.
