Research at Linnaeus Centre HEAD
HEAD stands for HEaring And Deafness and LCH represents a cross-disciplinary research program focusing on the cognitive aspects of communication. The Linnaeus grant enables the core group behind the application to create a new area of scientific enquiry: Cognitive Hearing Science (CHS). Central to the CHS area is the physiological-cognitive basis of hearing and hearing impairment and how the hearing brain interacts with type of signal processing in a hearing instrument, in listening environments with varying degrees of challenge. The deaf brain and sign-language communication are also part of the research program. Although the cognitive-technical-physiological basis of Linnaeus Centre HEAD is at the core of most projects, there are also projects that include social aspects of communication and the genetics of hearing impairment and deafness.
