Biography

Ayoub Daliri is an assistant professor of Speech and Hearing Science in the College of Health Solutions. His research lies at the intersection of speech science, neuroscience, and engineering. His work aims at understanding the neural mechanisms underlying speech production and its disorders, such as stuttering. Specifically, he examines questions related to how the nervous system integrates different sensory modalities for controlling the speech articulatory system. To answer such questions, he uses kinematic and acoustic measurements of speech (e.g., under conditions of auditory or somatosensory feedback perturbations) in combination with electrophysiological recordings (EEG, ECoG) and neuroimaging techniques (fMRI, DTI). The long-term goal of his research is to conduct multidisciplinary, translational research that will result in tangible benefits to individuals with speech disorders.

Research Interests

In the Speech and Brain Research Laboratory, we investigate neural mechanisms underlying normal speech production and stuttering, a speech fluency disorder. Our research is focused on understanding how different brain regions work together to produce speech, and what happens in the brain of people who stutter that results in speech disfluencies. To answer such questions, we examine (a) the behavior to characterize acoustic and kinematic features of speech, and (b) the brain to characterize structure and function of neural substrates that support the production of speech (using a combination of EEG, fMRI, DTI techniques). The long-term goal of our research is to develop novel effective treatments for stuttering.
