Hannah is a Research Assistant Professor from the United Kingdom. Her research seeks to understand changes in neural gain in the human central auditory system following augmented auditory input. In the auditory system, abnormally high neural gain may result in higher spontaneous and/or stimulus-evoked activity. This may have the unintended consequence of presenting as tinnitus and/or sound intolerance (e.g. hyperacusis). Therefore, a better understanding of neural gain may lead to more effective treatments for tinnitus and hyperacusis.
