Susan McLaughlin, Ph.D.

Research Scientist

Jump to:


Dr. Susan McLaughlin is a research scientist in Dr. Adrian KC Lee’s Laboratory for Auditory Brain Sciences & Neuroengineering. She received her PhD in Speech & Hearing Sciences at the University of Washington, working with Dr. Chris Stecker using fMRI to investigate human auditory cortical tuning to interaural level and time differences. Her work in Dr. Lee’s lab employs behavioral and neuroimaging methods (electroencephalography/EEG, magnetoencephalography/MEG, and MRI) to better understand neural processing of acoustic signals in difficult listening environments; binaural listening; and potential auditory deficits associated with clinical impairments – including fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) – in adolescents and adults.
