Welcome to the Johns Hopkins Center for Hearing and Balance. The Center includes researchers, teachers, clinicians, and trainees in the Hopkins community. The goal of the Center is to perform research and train new investigators, for both basic and clinical applications. Research is centered on auditory (hearing) and vestibular (balance) function in normal subjects and in patients with hearing or balance disorders.

The Center for  Hearing and Balance faculty provide courses on auditory and vestibular structure and function within the School of Engineering.  In previous years (alternating) this included EN 580.625, concentrating on transduction and signaling in the sensory periphery and EN 580.626 concentrating on central circuits and higher function.  

See links to exemplar curricula for EN 580.625 and EN 580.626
