        The laboratory is located in the Department of Neuroscience at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.   We are interested in the neuronal mechanisms underlying binaural hearing, with particular emphasis on sound localization.  Presently, the laboratory has two major directions of research: one which is aimed at understanding the neural circuitry for encoding the acoustic cues used in localization and the other which uses behavioral methods to study localization in awake, behaving animals. 

We are part of the Wisconsin Center for Hearing Science.

This research is supported by NIH grants DC-007177,  DC-002840 and DC-000116
