Bio/Research

Dr. Brandon Paul is an assistant professor of Psychology at Ryerson University. He directs the Cognitive Hearing Laboratory at Ryerson, where the goal is to understand the relationship between hearing function, cognitive function, and overall social and emotional well-being. A major focus of the laboratory is to investigate the relationship between hearing loss and cognitive ability, since it is now understood that hearing loss is a significant risk factor for mild cognitive impairment and dementia later in life. To accomplish this goal, the Cognitive Hearing Laboratory assesses behaviour using psychophysical experiments and self-report measures, tests hearing function using physiological measures, and uses neuroimaging techniques such as electroencephalography (EEG) and transcranial electrical stimulation (tES).

Dr. Paul holds a Ph.D. in Psychology from McMaster University, and an M.A. in Speech and Hearing Science and a B. Mus. in Music Theory from Ohio State University. He has held postdoctoral appointments at the University of Montreal, and at Sunnybrook Research Institute. Dr. Paul’s research has been funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, and the American Tinnitus Association.
