My main interest is in perceptual processes in the human brain, with research on a wide variety of topics related to auditory perception, visual perception, and time perception. Research topics are approached by using both psychophysical methods and neuroscience, with emphasis on EEG and near-infrared spectroscopy. My current interest is in the role of emotive/empathic aspects in the processing of speech in adult and preschool listeners. The project encompasses the study of acoustic/physical aspects of the speech signal, the perception of the signal by adults and children through psychophysical responses, and the study of where/when/to what extent the speech signal is processed in the listener’s brain. In this project, similar to an earlier one on visual (motion) processing, data are gathered from normally-developing preschool listeners and preschoolers diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.
