Antje Ihlefeld is a neural engineer with a primary interest in central auditory processing. She received her PhD in 2007 from Boston University on psychophysical and computational models of auditory perception. Her research includes studies of auditory perception in cochlear implants users and hearing aid users. More recently, she has widened this research focus to address how auditory deprivation affects central nervous system function as assessed with chronic electrode recordings in auditory cortex. She is an assistant professor at the Department for Biomedical Engineering at New Jersey Institute of Technology. The National Institute of Health currently funds part of her research. Antje is the director of the lab for Neural Engineering of Speech and Hearing (NESH lab).
The NESH lab is currently inviting applications of students who are interested in joining the lab. Undergraduates are encouraged to apply for research rotations. Please contact Dr. Ihlefeld directly if you are interested.
