Research Statement

Dr. Boothalingam is an audiologist and a researcher. His research is geared towards understanding the functional relevance of the auditory brain’s feedback systems, called efferents, in both adults and children. He uses non-invasive tools such as otoacoustic emissions (OAEs; sounds generated by healthy ears) and electroencephalography (EEG) to measure efferent activity in the auditory system. In addition, he is also interested in developing clinical tools to objectively evaluate both the auditory afferent and efferent systems.
