How Selective Hearing Works
The longstanding mystery of how selective hearing works — how people can tune in to a single speaker while tuning out their crowded, noisy environs — was solved by two scientists from UCSF, and others at hospitals in the U.S., Canada and Europe. UCSF neurosurgeon Dr. Edward Chang and postdoctoral fellow Nima Mesgarani worked with three patients who were undergoing brain surgery for severe epilepsy.
Donors Support Neurosciences Research and Patient Care
UCSF received a challenge gift of $20 million from the Sandler Foundation that will support for the university's groundbreaking research and clinical care in neurological diseases. In honor of Herbert and Marion Sandler and the Sandler Foundation, the new neurosciences building at the UCSF Mission Bay campus will be named the Sandler Neurosciences Center.
