The main subjects of investigation of Dr. Baum and her lab members are language neuroscience and speech science. Diverse methods are used – EEG/ERP, fMRI, behavioral tasks and eye-tracking – to investigate speech and prosodic processing, word recognition, and sentence and discourse processing with brain-damaged and neurologically intact populations in an effort to advance knowledge concerning the neural bases of language. Research on normal speech motor control, including kinematic and acoustic studies of speech adaptation to perturbation are also presently underway.
