Dr. Brad Story, "What Can Computational Models Tell Us About Speech Production?"
The School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences
presents: Dr. Brad Story, University of Arizona. His research centers on the use of computer models to aid in understanding how the shapes, sizes and movements of the voice source contribute to the sounds of speech.
Dr. Story: Our research is concerned with the acoustics, mechanics, and physiology of human sound production. In our laboratory we view the structure and function of the respiratory, laryngeal, and upper airway systems collectively as an instrument of communication that produces sound embedded with layers of information.
Whereas most of this work is directed toward understanding the sound producing mechanisms of speech, we also have interests in the singing voice, musical instruments, and understanding how listeners decode the information in the acoustic speech signal.

Coffee starts at 9:15 and refreshments following presentation.
