Anthony T. Herdman
Associate Professor in the School of Audiology and Speech Sciences Research Lead for The Communicating Mind and Body in UBC’s Language Sciences
University of British Columbia
Tony Herdman’s teaching includes graduate training of students in audiology and speech sciences with a particular focus on advanced hearing sciences and electrophysiology. Tony’s research program focuses on understanding the brain dynamics that underlie psychological phenomena involved in auditory and visual perceptions, audiovisual integration, attention, and language. He uses behavioural and electrophysiological (EEG & MEG) measures to study the fundamental principles of these systems and how they develop. Another major research area is on advancing and validating neuroimaging methods for EEG and MEG. Tony is particularly fascinated by how a human brain functions and communicates across multiple dimensions (space, time, and frequency) and how such communication is altered by experience as a brain develops its abundant abilities.
