GRACE CAPSHAW PUBLISHES PAPER IN COPEIA

Grace Capshaw recently published a paper in the journal Copeia with Daphne Soares (NJIT) as part of the Sixth Conference on the Biology of Plethodontid salamanders. The paper, "Hearing in Plethodontid Salamanders: A Review", is a survey of current and historical research on hearing, extratympanic sound and vibration transmission, and auditory evolution in salamanders, with a focus on lungless salamanders that lack a tympanic ear.

ALEX PRESACCO SUCCESSFULLY DEFENDS HIS DISSERTATION

Alex Presacco’s current research focuses on neural processing of complex sounds in aging population with neuroimaging techniques such as Electroencephalography (EEG) and Magnetoencephalography (MEG). Specifically, his Ph.D. dissertation focused on using electrophysiological measurements in individuals with normal hearing to better understand the neural mechanisms underlying age-related temporal processes deficits in the midbrain and in the cortex.
