Dr. Brang promoted!

Congratulations to Dr. David Brang for receiving tenure! This also means that Dr. Brang will soon receive the title of “associate” instead of “assistant” professor at the University of Michigan.

Now Hiring: PostDoc Position

PostDoc opportunity available! Help us research multisensory interactions, and particularly how vision modulates speech perception, using Cognitive Neuroscience techniques. Also help with our large-scale brain tumor collaboration with Shawn Hervey-Jumper at UCSF (https://herveyjumperlab.ucsf.edu). In this collaboration, we collect iEEG (from ~50 patients/year) and lesion mapping data (from ~150 patients/year) in patients with a brain tumor …

Award: Congratulations Karthik for receiving a UMich MICDE Fellowship!

Graduate student Karthik was awarded a fellowship with the Michigan Institute for Computational Discovery and Engineering for the upcoming 2020-2021 year. The award will support his research project, “Computational modeling of auditory speech perception,” which involves the use and advancement of scientific computing techniques and practices. Congratulations!

Publication: Vision perceptually restores auditory spectral dynamics in speech

  In this article, we demonstrate that the human perceptual system exploits the natural correlation between mouth shape and auditory signal frequency to facilitate speech perception. Due to the acoustics physics of the oral cavity, changing the shape of the mouth (i.e., its width or narrowness) can be used to predict frequencies of auditory signals …
