Auditory Electrophysiology, Auditory Processing Disorders, and Aging
Jeffrey Martin received his Bachelor’s (1996) and Master’s (1999) degrees in Communication Sciences and Disorders at The University of Texas at Austin. He completed his fellowship training (CCC-A) in audiology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston where he worked as the Audiology Department Coordinator. He completed his Ph.D. degree in 2006 at the University of Texas at Dallas under the direction of Dr. James Jerger. Dr. Martin was appointed as a Visiting Assistant Professor in the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences at UTD where he taught a number of graduate courses in the Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) program. He recently joined the Faculty as an Assistant Professor (Fall 2007). His research focuses on the behavioral and electrophysiological study of central mechanisms in hearing. Clinical applications of his research revolve around the diagnostic evaluation of individuals suspected of having auditory perceptual problems linked to the central nervous system, conditions often referred to as auditory processing disorders (APD). Dr. Martin’s laboratory is located at the UTD Callier Center.
My research is focused on the evaluation of school-aged children and adults who, despite having good peripheral hearing sensitivity, still experience difficulties in processing auditory information. In addition to behavioral measures, I examine electrophysiological responses (event-related potentials) recorded from the brain while listeners are engaged in tasks designed to assess diverse auditory and linguistic processes. Current studies examine the nature of dichotic listening deficits in children suspected of having auditory processing disorders (APD).
