Dr. Monson's research interests center around auditory neurodevelopment and the development of speech/voice perception.  His research program aims to answer a fundamental question in neuroscience:  How does experience with the environment affect auditory neurodevelopment and perception?  His work focuses on two major themes: (1) auditory neurodevelopment in preterm infants, and (2) the contribution of very high-frequency hearing capability and hearing loss to speech/voice perception for both children and adults.  In each case, the long-term goal is to improve the auditory experience for individuals who face communication difficulties.
