My PhD project is intitled “The temporal course of auditory, labial and manual signals in Cued Speech (CS) perception”.
The cued speech is a system of manual gestures accompanied by lip reading that enables speech perception and production in hearing impacted people. Nowadays, we have the advent of cochlear implants (CI) that stimulates the auditory nerve conveying sound stimuli. Therefore, speech related auditory stimuli is added to manual and labial informations in a face-to-face conservation among CS speakers.
I am interested on targeting the level of processing at which information from hands, lips and sounds are integrated in CS perception using electrophysiology (EEG).
