One focus of our research program is on speech processing, with a special stress on the biological aspects of speech. We are interested in the mechanism by which human listeners achieve speaker recognition. An analysis/synthesis model of the speech production system has been implemented, in order to study the effects of various speech parameters on the rate of speaker recognition (using psycho-acoustic experiments). We are also studying the effects of mental stress on speech.
