About

Dr Dave Langers is a Dutchman who studied Applied Physics at the Eindhoven University of Technology and subsequently acquired his physics teaching degree. After working in industrial Research and Development, starting in 2001 he pioneered functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) of the human central auditory system at the Maastricht University Hospital. He performed various studies on acquisition paradigms, auditory cortical function and organisation, and functional reorganisation under pathological conditions, resulting in a PhD in Medicine that was awarded cum laude. Since, he has continued his work at the Harvard University in Boston, USA, and the University Medical Centre in Groningen, the Netherlands. From 2009 till 2011, he obtained a personal grant which allowed him to study the tonotopic organisation of human auditory cortex in healthy subjects and tinnitus patients. In recent years he has specialised towards the development of neuroimaging techniques to accurately and efficiently map the tonotopic organisation of auditory cortex, with the goal to non-invasively be able to identify distinct functional subdivisions of the auditory system. Dave joined the NIHR Nottingham Hearing BRU in September 2012. He presently continues this in close collaboration with the Sir Peter Mansfield Magnetic Resonance Centre at the University of Nottingham.
