Professor King is co-director of the Auditory Neuroscience Group at Oxford. His research combines behavioural, electrophysiological, imaging and optogenetic approaches to study auditory perception in terms of the neural processes that take place in different regions of the brain. He is particularly interested in the neural mechanisms by which the brain adapts to different listening situations or to changes in inputs associated with hearing loss.
- Interactions between the senses, especially hearing and vision
- Perceptual learning
Professor King has experience of both print and broadcast media.
