Title: The Role of Attention in Speech-in-Noise Processing in Young Adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder. In this research project, we aim to examine how auditory attention skills in adults with ASD mediates performance in auditory processing measures, including speech perception in noise, auditory filtering, noise acceptance and cortical inhibition. Auditory attention enables increased cortical neural responses to attended auditory stimuli while reducing responses to ignored stimuli. Because auditory processing abilities are significantly correlated to academic performance, it is critical to better understand mechanisms underlying auditory skills to ensure educational success. Using behavioral and objective auditory cortical event-related potentials (ERPs), we propose to test the hypothesis that differences in neurobehavioral measures of auditory attention predict auditory processing skills in children with ASD
