Categories and Gradience: Neural Systems for Speech Communication

Conference URL:

We are delighted to announce a one-day workshop on Neural Systems for Speech Communication to be held at the Department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics, University of Cambridge, UK, on the 26th June 2012. The focus of the workshop is on representations and neural mechanisms for segmentation, abstraction, and categorisation in speech processing. Our invited speakers are Kai Alter (University of Newcastle), Matt Davis (MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, Cambridge)and Aditi Lahiri (University of Oxford). The workshop is intended to provide a forum for discussion between researchers who approach the neurocognitive processing of suprasegmental and segmental information in speech from different intellectual contexts (notably linguistics, audition, language psychology, and cognitive neuroscience), and with different methodologies.
