AHH seminar: Scalp-recorded CAEPs: How can we use a measure from the grey zone between syllable processing and attention?

Speaker: David Jackson Morris
Date: Thursday 20 October 2016
Time: 2.00pm – 3.30pm
Australian Hearing Hub, Level 1, Lecture Theatre

Bio: David Jackson Morris lectures and does postdoc research (publication list here*) in a combined Speech Pathology and Audiology programme at the ashram, otherwise known as, the Dept of Nordic Studies and Linguistics, University of Copenhagen.  Research that he is pursuing involves CAEPs, uniqueness points in auditory-lexical processing, and telehealth interaction across procedures and media.  Morris has also worked in the Danish private sector, and originally hails from Queensland.

Abstract: While cortical responses are commonly termed ‘obligatory’ and ‘pre-attentive,’ their precise dimensions are modulated by the attention state of the subject.  This talk will deal with the effect of attention on N1-P2 responses as measured with an intermodal paradigm involving continuous auditory stimulation.  It will also review experience with non-canonical CAEP single-trial analysis, including mixed-effects regression and machine classification.  Finally, the applicability of scalp-recorded electrical responses will be considered as a means to support speech perception.

Who should come:  hearing, speech and language researchers and clinicians, cognitive scientists, psychologists, researchers in ageing health and health care professionals.
