Professor Delgutte researches how the auditory system processes sounds, particularly speech, with the goal of understanding the neural basis of auditory perception. He is also interested applying this basic knowledge to improving hearing aids, cochlear implants, and artificial systems for the reproduction, transmission and recognition of sounds. His research is motivated by the obeservation that both hearing impaired listeners and automatic speech recognition systems have trouble processing speech in noise and reverberation, even if they do well in quiet. Understanding the neural mechanisms underlying the good performance of normal listeners in these conditions may suggest improvements in both assistive devices and artificial systems.
