Speech Neuroscience

Speaking is hearing:
my brain’s tracking my own voice.
Don’t mess with my vowels.

Caroline Niziolek

This dissertation investigates the neural mechanisms responsible for the correction of auditory errors in one’s own speech. Subjects compensated more for cross-vowel shifts than for shifts within a vowel’s normal range, despite identical magnitudes of the shifts. Auditory feedback control is thus sensitive to linguistic contrasts learned through auditory experience.
