25th November 2014, 1 pm : Effects of age on temporal coding and the perception of musical harmony
This seminar will be presented by Prof. Chris Plack (The University of Manchester)
2nd December 2014, 1 pm : Feel the noise: Exploring variability in the perception of speech and vocalizations
This seminar will be presented by Dr. Carolyn McGettigan (Royal Holloway, University of London)
Abstract: This talk will present a range of behavioural and neuroimaging studies in which explorations of individual variability in perceptual performance have yielded additional insights into the systems supporting the perception of speech and vocal cues in humans. The presentation will focus on speech recognition and perceptual adaptation processes studied using cochlear implant simulations, and will also include recent work addressing the processing of emotional vocalisations such as laughter.
