Speech Perception Lab
The speech perception lab conducts research aimed to understand the psycholinguistic foundations of speech recognition. We are especially interested in the perceptual and cognitive mechanisms underlying the mapping between the auditory signal and word representations in long-term memory. Of particular interest and relevance to the remit of the INSPIRE network is our focus on speech recognition in adverse conditions such as noise, divided attention, memory load.

The University of York is the main host of two INSPIRE projects:
- Project ID3: Understanding sentences in the presence of a competing talker.
This project aims to tease apart the factors involved in informational masking (a competing talker), in particular when the load on working memory is manipulated, and its effect on the comprehension of different syntactic structures (object vs subject relatives).
- Project A3: Effect of noise on phonetic processing vs. lexical-semantic integration
