UCL Speech Hearing and Phonetic Sciences is internationally recognised for its research into the perception and production of speech. We combine basic research into the normal mechanisms of speech and hearing with applied research into problems caused by hearing impairment and by atypical perceptual and cognitive development. Our methodologies include behavioural experimentation, computational modelling, acoustic analysis and neuro-imaging. We provide scientific and technical expertise to a number of collaborative research projects at UCL and beyond. Within UCL we have particularly close links to the Ear Institute and the speech group of the ICN as well as to the other research departments based in Chandler House.
We are pleased to host the web site of the International Phonetic Association
