Dr. Shao employs both behavioral and electroencephalogram (EEG) techniques to explore the online language processing in the human brain. Currently, her research mainly focuses on the congenital amusia (tone deafness), an innate musical disorder which influences around 1.5 – 4% population. She explores this line of research through an interdisciplinary approach, bringing together linguistics, music psychology and cognitive neuroscience. Another key focus of her work is how aging and age-related declines affect speech processing.
