Research Description:

My primary research focus is the sensorimotor control of speech. The sensory feedback from our own voices enables us to learn and maintain speaking skills and to rapidly correct errors in our speech. By combining neuroimaging (fMRI, M/EEG, ECoG) with acoustic measures, my research has characterized the circuits underlying speech feedback processing and its purpose in communication. We work both with typical speakers and with individuals with communication disorders, examining acoustic production variability and its relation to auditory prediction error signals in brain regions underlying sensorimotor control.

Research Key Words:

Sensorimotor Control, Speech Production, Neuroimaging, Neuroimaging Methods
