Krista Hyde, PhD

Professeure agrégée, Département de psychologie
Université de Montréal

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.
