UNDER-RESEARCHED TOPIC AREAS 
Over the years, several areas of science have been under-researched and under-represented through traditional funding mechanisms.  To encourage additional research in these areas, we have defined four Under-Researched Areas of Focus in an effort to continually move the field forward. Learn more about the areas and how to apply for a project in one of these areas.

MEET THE RESEARCHERS
Kenneth Vaden, Ph.D.
Medical University of South Carolina
Kennth Vaden, Ph.D., is a 2015 ERG grantee, focused on researching Speech Recognition; Neural Representations; Adaptive Control; and Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD). Dr. Vaden long term expected outcome from this line of research is to develop neural endophenotypes and methods to enhance characterization of CAPD. A control system that modulates auditory cortex activity could also provide a brain mechanism to guide future interventions. Dr. Vaden studies brain systems that support speech communication and how these change with age. His research is funded by the General Grand Chapter Royal Arch Masons International. Meet the rest of 2015 Emerging Researchers.
