This project proposes experimental approaches to investigate the neural bases of natural human verbal communication with fMRI
We investigate how natural sounds are represented at multiple stages of the auditory-processing hierarchy
We investigate how attractiveness and personality impressions are attributed to voices
We use voice morphing and neuroimaging to detial the perceptual and cerebral bases voice gender and identity processing
The neural representations of emotional and prosodic information in voice is investigated via neuroimaging and morphing.
The perceptual and neuronal bases of conspecific vocalization processing are compared across primates
The organization of the Temporal Voice Areas is investigated via neuroimaging
