BSc and MSc theses / Internships

Section for Physiology and Modeling of auditory Perception

We offer BSc and MSc thesis topics for students from the Neuroscience, Hearing Technology and Audiology, Physics Technology and Medicine, Physics, Engineering Physics, and Mathemathics programmes:

  • Bimodal cochlear implants: Optimize the interaction of a hearing aid in one ear and a cochlear implant in the other ear as part of a project with the ENT clinic and a CI manufacturer
    (The project can only commence once the Covid-related restrictions have been relaxed.

The following projects are well compatible with the Covid-related constraints:

  • Back-end modelling: How the response of mid-brain neurons relates to auditory perception
  • Modeling the detrimental influence “bad electrodes” in cochlear implant subjects (together with Volker Hohmann)
  • Binaural hearing in normal hearing subjects: analytic modelling

Besides the here listed topics, other BSc or MSc projects can often be arranged for students of the above-mentioned programmes. We are looking forward to talk to interested students. Please contact Prof. Mathias Dietz for more information.
