Dr. David Horn

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.
