Speech Perception Laboratory
Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences, Indiana University


Research in the Speech Perception Laboratory focuses on the perceptual consequences of phonetic variability in speech. The main topics under investigation are how listeners adapt to the variability present in the speech signal, how this learning can best be facilitated, and how children develop the ability to accurately and effortlessly perceive highly variable speech signals, including foreign-accented speech.
