MAPS: Curating Multiple approaches to the perception of speech
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 or even physical environment shape our perception of speech. From a multi-disciplinary perspective, we will explore how speech perception is sustained in cortical and subcortical networks, how speech is coded in cochlear implants, and how speech perception research can be designed in such in a way that sensory, cognitive and social effects are captured.
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.
