Edward J. Golob, Ph.D.
Edward Golob, Ph.D. is a Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Texas at San Antonio. He received his doctoral degree in Experimental Psychology from Dartmouth College, and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Neurology at the University of California, Irvine. Before joining the faculty at the University of Texas in San Antonio, Dr. Golob was an Associate Professor in the Psychology Department at Tulane University, member of the Program in Neuroscience, and the Tulane Center on Aging.
Dr. Golob studies the auditory system, and focuses on spatial hearing and attention as well as relationships between auditory perception and action. Dr. Golob’s laboratory uses event related potential (ERP) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to study the organization of the healthy human auditory cortex and the changes associated with brain aging. The common denominator is the broad question of how other cognitive systems (attention, short and long-term memory, action) interact with sensory processing in the auditory system. Applications include the study of normal aging and age-related neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and stuttering. His research has been funded by the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation and others.
Dr. Golob is a member of many professional societies, including the Cognitive Neuroscience Society, Association for Psychological Science, Association for Research in Otolaryngology and the Psychonomic Society. He is a member of the International Evoked Response Audiometry Study group, and serves on the Editorial Boards of Clinical Neurophysiology, and the Journal of Psychophysiology.
