Focus: The study of speech perception engages different disciplines, emphasizing its sensory, cognitive, or societal aspects. MAPS aims to promote and develop skills in conducting speech perception research combining multiple approaches.
Minimum Education Level: MA
Special Qualifications: This summer school is intended for Research Master students, PhDs, MdPhD and practitioners with coursework or research experience with speech, hearing or language. Basic knowledge of cognitive psychology and neuroscience is recommended.

Description:
You don’t hear the difference between bad and bed? Rather than a hearing problem, this is a problem of speech perception. During the MAPS summer school, we will explore how our experience, language, age, social network and physical environment shape our perception of speech. From a multi-disciplinary perspective, we will look into how speech perception is sustained in cortical and subcortical networks, how speech is coded (in the ear and in cochlear implants), and how speech perception research can be designed to capture the sensory, cognitive and social aspects of speech.

This summer school is intended for Research Master students, PhDs, MdPhD and practitioners with coursework or research experience with speech, hearing or language. Basic knowledge of cognitive psychology and neuroscience is recommended.
