Welcome to the homepage of Speech Perception & Learning Laboratory in the Department of Psychology and the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition at Carnegie Mellon University.

Under the direction of Dr. Lori Holt, the lab uses a combination of psychophysics, cognitive science, computational modeling and neuroimaging to explore how the listeners decode complex sounds like speech.
