Temporal Statistics in Audition and Speech – TEMPSTATS

Submission summary

Predicting the timing of sensory events is essential for daily behavior. The aim of TEMPSTATS is to understand how we predict sensory timing in complex auditory settings, and in speech in particular. First, the project will investigate how auditory processing is affected by the temporal statistics of contextual sensory information using artificial stimuli. It will then test the role of temporal statistics in speech listening. Finally, it will test whether exposure to sounds with specific temporal statistics can improve speech comprehension for adults and children. TEMPSTATS will provide new insights on the brain mechanisms underlying the processing of complex temporal information in audition and speech, and their impact on language comprehension. It will contribute to the development of new methods to investigate neural dynamics and will provide perspectives for new educational tools to improve language perception.
