Invited Talk

Encoding and Decoding Speech From the Human Brain

Edward Chang


This talk will review recent advances to understand how speech, a unique and defining human behavior, is processed by the cerebral cortex. We will discuss new neuroscientific knowledge on how the brain represents vocal tract movements to give rise to all consonants and vowels, and how this knowledge has been applied to development of a “speech neuroprosthesis” to restore communication for persons living with paralysis.
