Keynote Speakers

Frank Guenther, Boston University, USA
Talk Title: Neural modeling and imaging of stuttering


Frank Guenther is Professor of Speech Language, & Hearing Sciences and Biomedical Engineering at Boston University. Dr. Guenther’s research combines theoretical modeling with behavioral and neuroimaging experiments to characterize the neural computations underlying speech production. He is the originator of the DIVA model, which provides a quantitative and neuroanatomically precise account of the neural computations underlying speech motor control and their breakdown in communication disorders. He has also developed brain-machine interface technology aimed at restoring speech communication to severely paralyzed individuals. These topics are the focus of his 2016 book from MIT Press entitled Neural Control of Speech.
