Welcome to the Infant Hearing Lab website
The Lab is located in the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences at the University of Washington in beautiful Seattle, Washington. We are affiliated with the Virginia Merrill Bloedel Hearing Research Center and with the University of Washington Hearing Research Core. The lab is directed by Lynne Werner, PhD.
The goal of our research is to understand how hearing develops during infancy. We observe infants’ behavior in response to sound.
