CI CRASH/MASH Conference
On October 15th, 2021, the CI/CRASH hosted a Mini Conference on Cochlear Implants (CRASH) and Mid Atlantic Symposium on Hearing (MASH). The conference focuses on hearing research related to the Cochlear Implants and is organized by the members of the Binaural Hearing and Speech Lab from UW-Madison and members of the Auditory Perception and Modeling Lab from the University of Maryland.
The conference is for the undergraduates and graduates who present their topics in the science field such as neuroscience. The conference was hosted virtually on Zoom to see many students' presentations. Grady presented the topic of how learning impacts children with hearing aids and cochlear implants including the published neuroscience journal by Dr. White and Dr. Langston who focused on the listening effort with hearing aid and cochlear implant stimulations using functional near-infrared spectroscopy. Grady also discussed the impact and hypothesis of listening types: Adaptive, Effortful, and Adaptive and showed the neuroimages of the brain imaging data.
