He is researching the encoding of complex sounds in the auditory system. His work has the potential to contribute toward improved devices for interfacing with humans, including hearing aids, auditory prostheses and computers capable of recognizing speech. </p><p>Professor Barbour also investigates novel methods of rewiring brain circuitry to take on new functions and effectively replace damaged brain tissue.​​<br/></p><h3>​Biography</h3><p>Prior to joining the faculty at Washington University in St. Louis in 2004, Professor Barbour was a Research Associate at the Salk Institute for Biological Sciences.</p><img alt="" src="/Profiles/ResearchImages/Barbour_research.jpg?RenditionID=13" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>314-935-7548<br/><a href="mailto:dbarbour@wustl.edu">dbarbour@wustl.edu</a><br/>Whitaker Hall, <g class="gr_ gr_5 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling ins-del" id="5" data-gr-id="5">Ro om</g> 200E</p><div class="ms-rtestate-read ms-rte-wpbox" contenteditable="false"><div class="ms-rtestate-notify ms-rtestate-read 9f5920e4-26be-4045-a194-17796a7e733c" id="div_9f5920e4-26be-4045-a194-17796a7e733c" unselectable="on"></div><div id="vid_9f5920e4-26be-4045-a194-17796a7e733c" unselectable="on" style="display: none;"></div></div><ul style="margin-top: -10px;"><li> <a href="/news/Pages/Engineering-doctoral-student-wins-$10%2c000-for-efficient-hearing-test-.aspx" style="background-color: #ffffff;">Doctoral student wins $100,000 in healthcare technology competition​</a><br/></li><li>​<a href="/news/Pages/Research-may-lead-to-better-understanding-of-injured-spinal-cord-therapy.aspx" style="line-height: inherit; background-color: #ffffff;">Research may lead to better understanding of injured spinal cord therapy​​​​​</a></li></ul>
