MSU Speech Perception-Production Lab
The Michigan State University (MSU) Speech Lab investigates speech perception and production using a wide range of approaches. One of our goals is to better understand the mechanisms underlying both normal and disordered speech perception and production. A particular focus of our labís research is speech prosody, defined as the pitch, timing, rhythm, and loudness of speech. Since these properties of sound are shared between speech as well as music, a number of our research projects aim to test connections between these two domains of auditory perception. These music-speech connections are the basis of our labís informal name, the Music in Speech Understanding (MSU) Lab, which shares initials with the university. The principal investigator of the MSU Speech Lab is Dr. Laura Dilley.
