How Certain Sounds Shape the Brain

Northwestern University reported that Nina Kraus, PhD, a professor of neurobiology, physiology and otolaryngology, shed light on one of the brain’s most complex tasks--making sense of sound--during the Falling Walls Conference held November 8-9, 2015 in Berlin, Germany. Dr Kraus explained how she has devised a new way to measure what happens in the brain when it is processing sounds such as speech and music.
