Abstract:

Professor Sophie Scott will address the links between perception and production networks in the control of human vocalisations, and how these vary during different kinds of vocal behaviour, including variation in speech production. She will demonstrate that current models of speech production, which posit a key role for error correction mechanisms in speech production are likely limited in their value, and also are that speech production and voice production may have more in common in neurobiological terms than we have necessarily assumed.
