Elena Bolt, M.Sc.

PhD student


I am a Ph.D. student at the Computational Neuroscience of Speech & Hearing Research Group. I received my MSc in psychology with focus on cognitive neuroscience from the University of Zurich. I am interested in understating the link between hearing loss and cognition. My Ph.D. projects focus on speech perception and neural speech processing in older adults, particularly in clinical populations with age-related cognitive impairment, for example, due to MCI or Alzheimer’s disease. To investigate this connection, I primarily look at neural oscillations of language processing.
