Our interest is to understand how the brain perceives and recognizes the identity, affective and semantic aspects of the human voice.

Some of the questions that drive us are:

We use behavioral, neurophysiological and neuroimaging tools to probe these questions. Ultimately, these studies aim to bring us closer to understanding why some people hear voices when there is nobody speaking.


This work has been possible due to a combination of skills and knowledge from psychologists, biomedical engineers, computational linguists, and medical doctors.
