      Collapse Overview
      Dr. Laurie Eisenberg is an audiologist who engages in clinical research specific to pediatric hearing loss, auditory perception, and sensory devices. Her primary research interests involve: 1) defining the auditory factors and their inter-relationships that underlie the development of spoken language competence in infants and young children with hearing loss; and 2) developing methods and assessment tools for measuring auditory capacity in children with hearing loss. Dr. Eisenberg has had numerous collaborations with scientists from Johns Hopkins University, San Diego State University, Indiana University, Purdue University, and UCLA. Her research is supported by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
