The Speech and Applied Neuroscience Lab at the University of Kansas focuses on better understanding the patterns of neural activity leading to fluent speech production and perception, and how to use that information to create advanced assistive communication devices for individuals with profound motor impairments. Our research combines expertise from a wide range of disciplines including Speech, Language Hearing Sciences, Neuroscience, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Psychology and Linguistics.

Our research is supported by the National Institute on Deafness and other Communication Disorders (NIDCD R03-DC011304, J. Brumberg PI, R21-DC013095, R. Patel PI), CELEST, a National Science Foundation Science of Learning Center (NSF SMA-0835976, B. Shinn-Cunningham PI) and the American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation (NCSRG, J. Brumberg PI).
