Daniel J. Tollin, a Professor in the Department of Physiology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, received a B.S. in biomedical engineering from Boston University and Ph.D. in experimental psychology from Oxford University. Dr. Tollin’s research, funded by the NIH and the Department of Defense, investigates changes in auditory function following temporary hearing loss early in life. These changes often lead to deficits in auditory processing that persist following the hearing loss itself. The research aims to determine the time course of auditory deficits, where they occur in the brain, how to identify them clinically and whether and how deficits can recover after hearing restoration. A second line of research investigates mechanisms of auditory injury due to high-energy impulsive sounds, such as blast waves from explosions. Blast and noise-exposure related hearing loss is the leading cause of medical referral for soldiers.
