  • Research Objectives
    Dr. Sarko is interested in sensory processing (somatosensory and audiovisual processing in particular). She utilizes histology, histochemistry, immunohistochemistry, electron microscopy, electrophysiology, and behavioral analyses in order to assess sensory specializations and deficits as well as perceptual/behavioral outcomes. Her current studies span animal model experiments as well as human psychophysical studies. Specifically, she is interested in multisensory processing in animal models with unique sensory specializations. In addition, she studies multisensory integration deficits in individuals with autism spectrum disorder.
