Speech Perception & Auditory Cognition Laboratory (SPeAC Lab)

What We Do

We conduct basic scientific research to test theories of how the mind processes information. We do this mainly through experiments in which participants give simple responses to stimuli that are presented via computer.

Research in the SPeAC Lab focuses on a variety of fundamental questions about cognition, such as:
  • How does the mind categorize auditory and visual information, including speech sounds?
  • How does the mind combine information from more than one source?
  • How are perception and memory influenced by contextual information?
