We currently offer the following possibility for research in our labs for students:


  1. 1.MatLab experienced students: research on cortical oscillatory phenomena in hearing and deaf that investigate the ability to integrate sensory stimuli into ongoing cortical processing.

  2. 2.MatLab experienced students: Analysis of effective (functional) connectivity of the brain, developing new tools of analysis.

  3. 3.Medical students (ca. 1 year duration), students of biology, no MatLab experience required: Analysis of histological sections of cerebral cortex stained with different antibody staining in hearing and deaf animals. Sections already available.

  4. 4.Medical students (ca. 1 year duration): Analysis of ABR responses of single-sided animals.

  5. 5.In vivo experiments: Research on development of central auditory prostheses.

  6. 6.In vivo experiments Research on electrical stimulation of the inner ear with our industry partners.

  7. 7.Interested students are welcome to suggest a topic of interest that fits to our research topics.

Please send a CV along with other relevant details to Prof. A. Kral, together with the topics of interest.

We are an international team of many young scientists with profound experiences in electrophysiology in vivo research, EEG and signal processing, integrated into a cluster of excellence of the DFG Hearing4All. We are working on topics that are of high significance for both clinical and scientific community. Large research facilities of the Institute of AudioNeuroTechnology with more than 1800 m2 fully-equipped lab space including wet neurophysiology labs (recording systems from Neuralynx and Alpha-Omega, up to 256 recording channels), human electrophysiology (high-densitiy EEG, 128 channel, Brain Amps System), computational neuroscience, molecular biology, histology, material research on cochlear implants labs can be utilized for research. Keyence histology analysis system for flourescence imaging and a STED/confocal microscope are available for histological analysis. Among our team we have experts on in vivo neuroscience, signal processing, neurophysiological data analysis, computer modelling and MatLab programming in our team.

Teaching is concentrated on the auditory system (PhD programs), but possibility for involvement in teaching at the medical faculty are given if requested.

We are involved in the MD and Dr.rer.nat. program of Medical University Hannover, PhD programs „Auditory Sciences“ and „Systems Neurosciences“.
