Welcome to the MAPS lab!
At the Memory and Perception of Speech (MAPS) Lab, we investigate how linguistic experience shapes our perception of spoken language. The recent focus of this program has been in the role of memory consolidation during sleep in the acquisition of speech information. Our methods combine behavioral with neuroimaging (fMRI, ERP) techniques to better understand the neural underpinnings of perceptual phenomena. We study these questions in populations with typical and impaired language, in order to improve remediation efforts in those who struggle with spoken language processing.
Congratulations to Lane Williams, Molly Smith, and Dr. Earle for their excellent presentations at the ASHA Conference in Orlando, Florida!

MAPS lab was well represented at the UD Undergraduate Summer Research Symposium. This year, our very own Hannah Martin and Emily Virok presented their research projects, as well as Charlotte, a visiting scholar from UConn. They did a fantastic job! Charlotte, thanks for sharing your summer doing research with us!
