Welcome to UNLV's Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory!

The ACNL is in the Department of Psychology @ UNLV, and was founded in 2007. We are proud to collaborate with scholars at UNLV and from around the world on projects about how the brain does sound and other topics that take advantage of our skills and interests.

News and recent publications:

A group of consciousness researchers, including Joel, wrote an open letter critiquing some of the recent work testing theories of consciousness. It's made a splash on twitter, and is covered by Nature and New Scientist.

The ACNL is accepting new Ph.D. students for admission in Fall 2024 🥳! Admission deadlines are Dec. 1 2023 for both the PBS and Neuroscience Ph.D. programs. Feel free to contact Joel to discuss possible research projects.

Joel will be presenting a public talk about Music and Brain Health at UNLV on December 14. 

Karli Nave presented preliminary findings for our multi-lab replication of Nozaradan et al. (2011) at RPPW in the UK in June 2023. We will present them again at the Timing Research Forum and BTSCon in October 2023, and the ARO conference in February 2024. 

We presented papers on music perception and misophonia at ICMPC in Japan 🇯🇵🍣 in August 2023! See program for details.
