Amineh Koravand

Dr. Amineh Koravand is an Associate Professor in the Audiology & Speech Pathology Program, Faculty of health sciences at the University of Ottawa. Prof. Koravand’s research deals with the relationship between the peripheral and central auditory systems in children. Her goal is to develop neurophysiological measures (biological neuromarkers) to assess the central auditory processing at subcortical and cortical level of children during early childhood, to prevent disorders while brain plasticity is still significant. Moreover, her lab focuses mainly on applying Event Related Potentials (ERPs) combined with behavioral assessments to study plasticity in auditory neural pathways resulting from musical training, singing lessons, bilingualism, multilingualism as well as various auditory-speech deficits.
