Barbara S. Herrmann, Ph.D., CCC-A
Assistant Professor of Otology and Laryngology, Harvard Medical School

Clinical Associate, Department of Audiology

My research concentrates on the electrophysiology of human auditory and vestibular systems primarily in clinical populations with the purpose of a more thorough understanding of the mechanisms underlying system disorders and consequently optimizing these measures for diagnosis and treatment monitoring. My primary interests are in the identification and diagnosis of hearing loss in infants using electrophysiologic measures and the characterization and the use of electrically auditory evoked responses in cochlear implant and auditory brainstem implant patients.
