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 (see Current Research for more 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.
