Workshop on Speech Production and Motor Control

An internal Workshop on Speech Production and Motor Control, organized by David Ostry, was held at Haskins Laboratories on Thursday, October 4, from 12:30 to 5:05 p.m. in the large conference room. Eleven researchers presented their recent work. The workshop was intended to provide an opportunity for all to learn what has recently been accomplished in these areas at Haskins Laboratories. A list of speakers and titles appears below. For additional information contact David Ostry. PowerPoint presentations are available for some of the talks. Videos are forthcoming.
