Dr Krista Hyde’s research aims at better understanding the behavioral and brain correlates of human complex sound processing (i.e. in music and speech) in both typical and atypical development.

Research themes:

  • Local and global auditory processing
  • Spectral and temporal processing
  • Cross-modal processing (i.e., auditory-motor, auditory-visual)
  • Brain plasticity / training studies
  • Brain connectivity studies

Populations studied (children and adults):

  • typical-development
  • specialized training (i.e. music and dance)
  • developmental disorders: autism spectrum disorders, dyslexia, tone-deafness

Methods used:

  • cognitive and psychophysical measures
  • structural (VBM, DTI, cortical thickness) and functional MRI measures
  • correlational analyses between brain and behavioral/ clinical measures

She is presently Assistant Professor at the Department of Psychology of the University of Montreal and Adjunct Professor at the Deptartment of Psychiatry, at McGill University.
