Brief Clinical/Research Interest Statement

Dr. Hecox has longstanding interests in the sensory physiology of pain and audition, source localization algorithm, and clinical epilepsy. This work has generally involved the development of advanced methods or techniques for noninvasively measuring the activation of cerebral structures in humans and primates of all ages. This typically involves the adaptation of digital signal processing techniques to biological problems.
