Poster presentation at the Boston Speech Motor Control Symposium

Thea will be presenting a poster at the 2021 Boston Speech Motor Control Symposium (BSMCS) on Friday, June 18. This poster, titled “Stop voicing contrasts in Parkinson’s: Effect of modified speaking rate in connected speech.” This is an extension of our work examining acoustic and perceptual consequences of speech rate modifications in talkers with Parkinson’s disease.

Check out the poster here.

This reflects a big team effort: A huge thank you to our lab members who have been hard at work helping to manually correct stop consonant boundaries and providing feedback that allows us to scale up our workflow for annotating our data for this project!!
