Research Specialization Areas - Speech and Voice Perception

The study of speech and voice perception and spoken word recognition provides insight into the structure of phonetic/phonological categories, their acoustic and perceptual attributes, characteristics of individual talkers and the transfer of supra-segmental information, the mental lexicon. An understanding of these building blocks of speech and spoken language is crucial to a comprehensive theory of human communication. Such a theory informs both our general understanding of human cognition and our specific understanding of communication disorders involving processes of speech, language, or hearing.
