Speech and Hearing Science Faculty and Research

Research conducted by our faculty addresses fundamental elements of hearing, speech and language centered around three main themes: auditory and language cognitive neuroscience, developmental and educational sciences, and habilitative and rehabilitative sciences. State-of-the-art cognitive, behavioral and neuroscience techniques are used to study speech, language and hearing components of human communication. Our numerous research laboratories provide faculty with opportunities to advance research in their particular areas of focus.
