Description: 

In 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 regions of the brain 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.
