For this year’s Christmas lecture, we are privileged to host Poppy Crum. Dr. Crum is a senior scientist at Dolby Labs in San Francisco, a consulting professor at Stanford University’s CCRMA, and a Fellow of the Audio Engineering Society. Her specialisms are in neuroscience and psychoacoustics, the perception of complex acoustic spaces, hearing loss and protection, and experimental design. In addition to her career at Dolby, Dr. Crum has worked as an academic researcher, a violinist and recording engineer.

In this lecture, Dr. Crum will play and explain a number of auditory illusions, exploring the sensory interactions between sound and sight, and how the phenomenon of neuroplasticity affects auditory perception.
