Dr Piers Dawes
I’m a lecturer in audiology at the University of Manchester, and my background is in experimental psychology.
This Cognition in Hearing special interest group was founded in June 2013 following widespread interest in audiology in how cognitive factors interact with hearing on communication.
The aim of the SIG is ‘to promote research in and raise awareness of new developments on cognitive issues in hearing science, assessment, and intervention’. Some of the activities that the SIG facilitates are discussion papers on topical issues (see our recent discussion paper on ‘listening effort’ published in IJA), clinical guidelines for cognitive issues related to assessment and treatment of hearing, on-line ‘lunch and learn’ seminars and articles by international experts in the BSA Audacity magazine.
All valuable, interesting and enjoyable activities provided by your BSA.
