Professor Andrew Oxenham has been awarded a 5-year $1.6M grant to study pitch perception in people with normal hearing and cochlear implants. Pitch is crucial for music but also plays a major role in understanding speech, particularly in noisy backgrounds.  Understanding more about pitch coding and perception should improve our ability to transmit pitch information via devices such as cochlear implants.
