mankind lived just like the

Our Mission

The mission of our lab is to provide an integrated approach to the understanding of speech production and motor control mechanisms in the human brain. The ultimate goal of our research is to promote knowledge that can lead to the development of novel methods for diagnosis and treatment of speech motor disorders in patients with neurological deficits.


Research Topics

  • Neuroscience of Speech Production and Motor Control
  • Neurological Bases of Speech Disorders in Parkinson’s Disease
  • Electrophysiology (EEG, ERP, ECoG) and Functional Imaging (fMRI) of Human Brain
  • Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS)
  • Cortical Neural Processing of Voice, Speech and Music
  • Signal Processing and Computational Modeling
