What is it about?

This study brings together different populations, to understand the relationship between auditory processing and various linguistic abilities. The populations we studied all show an auditory temporal processing deficit: sleep-deprived young adults, students with dyslexia, and aging adults.

Why is it important?

Usually, studies focus on a certain population to study various processes. In this study, we integrate different populations that show similar difficulties.


To compare different types of populations, that are not usually being compared, is very out-the-box. Meaning, exciting and frightening.
