Amineh Koravand

Dr Amineh Koravand is an associate professor and neuro-audiologist in the Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology program at the University of Ottawa. Prof. Koravand’s research deals with the relationship between the peripheral and central auditory systems in children. Her goal is to develop neurophysiological measures (biological neuromarkers) to assess the central auditory processing at subcortical and cortical level of children during early childhood, to prevent disorders while brain plasticity is still significant. With the collaboration of Prof. Escera and Prof. Jordi Costa-Faidella, Dr. Koravand will work in a project involving frequency following response (FFR) elicited by speech stimuli presented in background noise.
