UCL Psychology and Language Sciences Speech Research Group

Speech Research Group


The team’s main interests are speech production and perception and their relationship.


The speech team has a particular interest in:

  • stuttering as a developmental speech disorder and its relationship to fluent development of speech and language
  • speech processing of Mandarin tones.


A variety of methodologies are used to study these processes including

  • analyses of naturally-produced spontaneous speech
  • surveys
  • experimental studies
  • neuroimaging studies
  • modelling studies.
