About Us: The Huron Auditory Perception (HAP) Lab is directed by Dr. Stephen Van Hedger, and is based in Huron University College's Department of Psychology.

Our Research: We explore how listeners recognize and understand perceptual patterns in the world. The ability to extract meaning from perceptual patterns is a fundamental skill underlying speech and music understanding. Through our research, we hope to inform how speech and music understanding can be improved across the lifespan. You can learn more about our specific research projects by heading on over to our Research Page.

Our Team: Huron is a small, liberal arts institution. As such, our team is primarily comprised of motivated, inquisitive, and talented undergraduate students. You can learn more about our current and previous lab members by heading over to our People Page.
