The influence of visual information on speech perception is well known. For example, when we are in a noisy environment, lipreading makes it easier to understand speech.

The peripheral auditory system

Isn’t it nice to hear birds singing, the voice of a loved one or our favourite song on the radio? All this is possible thanks to our hearing system!

About Us

Le laboratoire des neurosciences de la parole et de l’audition, dirigé par Pascale Tremblay, Ph.D., se spécialise dans la recherche en neurosciences cognitives du langage. Nos travaux, fondamentalement multidisciplinaires, portent principalement sur les bases neurobiologiques de la perception et la production du langage et de la voix, et sur les facteurs qui affectent notre habileté à communiquer en contexte social (âge, cognition, audition, etc.).
