Benjamin Zendel is an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Medicine at Memorial University of Newfoundland. His main research interests include auditory perception, age-related changes in auditory perception, neural plasticity and how music training can improve basic auditory processes, especially in older adults. To investigate these questions, he uses multiple psychoacoustic and neuro-imaging techniques (including EEG, MEG and fMRI) to investigate neuro-plastic changes in the brain’s of lifelong musicians, and other who have undergone auditory training.
