Research Field: Auditory psychophysics and neurophysiology
Mechanisms for analyzing auditory scenes
Attention and saliency
Shitsukan of sound / acoustic environment
Measurement and evaluation of physiological functions
Electroencephalography (EEG) : From brainstem to cortex
"Eye metrics": pupillometry and microsaccades
Mechanisms and evaluation of hard-of-hearing problem
"Hidden" hearing loss
Noise-induced hearing loss
Effect of age
We found that auditory-system-like information representation emerges in an artificial neural network optimized for generic auditory classification tasks. A preprint paper on this work is open on bioRxiv (Apr. 2018).
Gave a talk entitled "Eye metrics as indicators of auditory salience?" at Symposium: Understanding auditory salience, 41th ARO Midwinter Meeting (San Diego, USA) (Feb. 2018).
