Research Interests:

Howard Nusbaum is a psychologist who studies spoken language use, attention, categorization, learning, and affect. He uses behavioral research methods together with functional neuroimaging to study a variety of basic scientific questions such how listeners understand a speaker's intended message and how we learn new perceptual and motor skills. Recent studies have investigated how listeners adjust to differences between talkers, how sleep consolidates memory for perceptual learning, how analog variation in the speech signal can be used to describe events, how prosody conveys emotional and syntactic information, and how response biases in social categorization can be modified by experience.
