Research Interests:
- Brainstem and cortical auditory evoked potentials
- Experience-dependent auditory neural plasticity and perceptual learning
- Neural correlates of psychoacoustic, speech/music, and auditory scene analysis phenomena
- Cognitive and perceptual transfer effects between music and language processing
- Computational modeling of normal and impaired peripheral auditory nerve physiology

Dr. Bidelman directs the Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory located in the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Memphis. The lab uses a multifaceted approach to study the neural encoding of complex sound (e.g., speech and music) at both pre-attentive and cognitive levels of brain processing. Methods include a coordinated blend of auditory evoked potentials (AEPs), psychoacoustics, and computational modeling. Current lab projects are focused on understanding the neurocomputations involved in generating basic psychoacoustic phenomena and during complex music/speech listening. A special focus of the lab is to better understanding the connection between neuroelectric brain activity elicited by auditory events and human behavior. Complementary work examines how different listening experiences and/or training (e.g., music lessons, bilingualism) influence an individual's auditory skills and how these benefits might transfer to improve seemingly unrelated cognitive abilities. We are particularly interested in how musical training improves speech- and language-related skills.
