The ability to perceive speech in the presence of noise declines with age. However, the practice of certain musical activities, such as singing, could minimize this decline. But is this the case for everyone who sings? And how can we explain the link between singing and speech perception?

Conference on the neurobiology of language

Interested in language and how the brain works? Whether you are a neophyte or initiated in these fields, we invite you to watch a conference given this summer by Dre. Tremblay on the topic of the neurobiology of language!

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.).
