Dr. Dana Boatman

SLI Title

Professor, Departments of Neurology and Otolaryngology


I direct a cross-disciplinary program of research and training in clinical auditory neuroscience. My research program is funded through NIH-NIDCD and focuses on how the human brain ‘hears’ simple and complex sounds. My laboratory conducts brain mapping studies of neurosurgical patients that combine electrophysiology (intracranial recordings), behavioral testing, signal processing, and statistical modeling. Current studies focus on spatial-temporal dynamics of high-frequency cortical auditory spectral responses in normal and impaired listeners. My laboratory provides NIH-supported clinical research training for pre-doctoral and post-doctoral trainees in neuroscience, audiology, biostatistics, and bioengineering.
