Understanding the Sound Mind: An Interview with Nina Kraus, PhD

Nina Kraus, PhD, is the Hugh Knowles Professor of Neurobiology in the Department of Communication Sciences and Otolaryngology at Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill. Through her research and those of her colleagues in the Kraus Lab, she has continually uncovered new findings about auditory processing and the brain, as well as our lives in sound—findings that have great consequences for young children and their exposure to music, as well as for people with language disorders, concussion, cognitive issues, hearing loss, and more.
