Dr. Horn’s major research interest is in the auditory development of infants who receive cochlear implants (CIs). Despite early detection and intervention, not all infants with CIs develop adequate spoken-language skills to support auditory-oral communication development, and long-term clinical outcomes remain extremely variable and difficult to predict. Horn’s research is designed to improve our understanding of how basic psychoacoustic skills emerge and relate to spoken-language acquisition in CI infants. The results may lead to the development of clinically useful tools to assess the auditory benefits for infants receiving CIs.
