Dr. Ahveninen’s mission is to apply novel and improved techniques to achieve more accurate estimates of human brain function than previously achieved. His work focuses on neuroimaging of human auditory system, auditory working memory and higher-order auditory cognition using techniques including fMRI, MEG/EEG and TMS/EEG. In his initial work at the Martinos Center, he used these techniques to elucidate the functional subsystems of human auditory cortex and to examine how attention and information from other sensory systems affect auditory processing.
