Current Lab Members

Lisa RedfordDirector/PI: Melissa (Lisa) Redford

Research interests: Development of the parameters that control rate, emphasis, and style changes in spoken language; how language and nonlanguage subsystems interact to support the acquisition and production of prosodically-related temporal patterns; interrelationship between speech and language factors in speech planning and disordered prosody; the relative weightings of factors that contribute to intelligibility and the perception of disordered prosody.
