Claude Alain

Dr. Claude Alain is a senior scientist at the Rotman Research Institute at Baycrest Hospital and a Professor in Psychology at the University of Toronto. His research is in the field of cognitive neuroscience and he focuses on the processes and brain mechanisms of perception, attention, and memory of auditory information. Dr. Alain uses a combination of neuroimaging techniques (EEG, MEG, and fMRI) to understand how attention to and memory of auditory information is influenced by aging and hearing loss. His research also seeks to determine whether musical training can mitigate age-related decline in speech-in-noise performance.
