Ears to the future: Using brain activity to predict hearing outcomes

Sammi Harrison (PhD Student and Research Assistant at the University of Nottingham BRC’s Hearing Theme)
A cochlear implant is a device that is surgically implanted that provides a deaf person with some hearing. However, the degree to which the person can use those sounds to understand the world around them varies greatly depending on lots of different aspects of their development. This is particularly difficult to predict in children, especially those who are too young to tell us what they can hear. My work looks at using patterns of brain activity in babies as biomarkers to identify young cochlear implant users who could benefit from additional help with their speech and language.

Flavour technology and taste in brewing science

Dr. David Cook (School of Biosciences, University of Nottingham)
David has 20 years of experience conducting research and teaching relating to brewing, malting, analytical food chemistry and flavour technology. The Cook research group has strong track record of collaboration with and sponsorship by industry, including maltsters and multinational brewing companies.

His talk will focus on malting science and technology, beer flavour formation and stability and the reduction of primary energy usage in malting and brewing to help you explore the flavour creations around brewing whilst you indulge in the local brews at Bunkers Hill.

Sight recovery after stroke. Can brain imaging help?

Denis Schluppeck (Assistant Professor, University of Nottingham)
Every year around 150,000 people in the UK have a stroke with roughly 30% experiencing some kind of sight loss as a result. Such visual field loss is a common and devastating complication of cerebral strokes.

I will talk about how we can combine clinical sight tests with brain imaging (magnetic resonance imaging) to precisely map the areas of the brain affected by sight loss. This allows identification of visual brain areas where function could potentially be improved with rehabilitation.
