New research paper

We have a new paper recently published in the Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research. This paper looks at the role of somatosensory information in speech perception, specifically examining whether overt vocal imitation improves listener perception of dysarthric speech. The results reveal a significant relationship between intelligibility improvement and imitation accuracy, suggesting that ties to the mental representation of the lexicon can be strengthened by way of a somatosensory motor trace.
