An Interdisciplinary Program in Hearing and Communication Neuroscience at USC
Hearing & Communication Neuroscience (HCN) is a graduate and post-graduate training program at the University of Southern California. The program includes faculty from multiple departments spanning the Keck School of Medicine, the Viterbi School of Engineering, and the Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences. Cutting-edge research programs investigating mechanisms of audition and vocal communication are located in the Departments of Otolaryngology, Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine, Physiology & Biophysics, Neurobiology, Linguistics, Psychology, and Biomedical Engineering. Our goal is to bring together scientists working in diverse areas of hearing and communication neuroscience to provide outstanding training opportunities for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars. Our program is supported by an NIH training grant from the National Institute of Deafness & Communication Disorders.
