Current Research:

 

Maike Ferber studies the plasticity of spatial hearing in the horizontal plane.

Since 2017 she works on her dissertation project “Reweighting of Binaural Cues: Generalizability and Applications in Cochlear Implant Listening” as a member of the Psychoacoustics and Experimental Audiology research group.
The project investigates to what extend the weights of the interaural time and level difference can be changed in normal and electric hearing by an audio-visual training and discusses possible applications.
