Neural processing of speech in typical and atypical language learners

Research addresses questions related to the manner in which speech is recognized in auditory cortex and how the acoustic signals of spoken words that are transmitted as sound waves are recognized in auditory cortex and how the acoustic signals are then enhanced for linguistic processing (language comprehension). We test neuro-typical and neuro-atypical young adults. Experiments include both electrophysiological and behavioral methods.
