Our main research theme is using advanced brain scanning, electrophysiological techniques and neuromodulation techniques to map the structure and function of the human brain. We are particularly involved in studying the neurological disorders and developing novel neuromodulation treatments.
By investigating the common neurophysiological mechanisms clustering groups of pathologies we try to understand how the brain is involved in specific disorders. A new line of research will aim at the development of new neuromodulation techniques for these neurological disorders. We have a particular interest in auditory brain disorders. Our research should lead to a deeper understanding of brain function in dyslexia, aphasia, agnosia, depression and tinnitus. In this context the Lab for Auditory and Integrative Neuroscience is also interested in the effects of sensory deprivation and the effect it has on brain reorganization.
The reach and extent of the research of the Lab for Auditory and Integrative Neuroscience can only be guaranteed by an extensive collaboration with basic neuroscience researchers, engineers, functional neuroimaging experts and clinicians from non-neurosurgical and neurosurgical fields. Regular contacts with neurophilosophers helps to guide the translation into clinical application of the available basic neuroscientific data.
The Lab for Auditory and Integrative Neuroscience is part of the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences of the University of Texas at Dallas and was set up in 2013 when Sven Vanneste was appointed. We have lab space at the Callier Center, close to Dallas. We have active collaborations with the different Labs at UTD. We also have several external collaborations involving the Center for Excellent of Surgery at the University of Otago in New Zealand and the University Hospital of the University of Texas at Southwestern as well as various groups in Europe, Asia and the US.
Applications are invited for a PhD students, Post-doc positions and internships at the Lab for Auditory & Integrative Neuroscience
The Callier Center for Communication Disorders at the University of Texas at Dallas in collabortion with UT Southwestern medical center is happy to invite you for an evening (6.30 - 8.00 pm) on tinnitus.View more
