Cochlear Implants

Dr. Marcia Hay-McCutcheon

The long term goals of Dr. Hay-McCutcheon’s research projects are to identify how potential age-related declines associated with working memory capacity and attention affect perception, and in turn how perception is associated with physiological outcomes in adults who use cochlear implants.  It is hoped that the information obtained from this research will significantly improve our ability to accurately diagnose speech comprehension deficiencies and to provide effective treatment options for older adults who use cochlear implants.
