Biography

Professor Michael Dorman is a emeritus professor of speech and hearing sciences in the College of Health Solutions. His group investigates many aspects of speech, voice and music perception by patients fit with cochlear implants and by normal-hearing subjects listening to simulations of cochlear implants. One line of research focuses on neural plasticity in children. In this work, his group uses cortical auditory-evoked potentials to assess the development, deterioration and plasticity of central auditory pathways in normal-hearing children, children with hearing-impairments and profoundly deaf children fit with cochlear implants.

A second line of research, which has been ongoing for 13 years, involves the perception of speech when speech is transmitted by only a few channels of stimulation-the case in patients with cochlear implants. His group is also trying to make music sound better for implant patients. Additionally, they are moving to a series of studies with the newest type of implant patient-those with residual low-frequency acoustic hearing.
