Periodic Report Summary 2 - SPEECH UNIT(E)S (The multisensory-motor unity of speech)

This project aims to make clear the role of perceptuo-motor relationships in the structuration and cognitive processing of speech units. A central component is the development of COSMO, a computational Bayesian model of the speech communication process that can be applied to both speech perception and speech production, and enables to compare various theoretical hypotheses in a rigorous Bayesian framework. A number of important theoretical and simulation results have been obtained and published. The sketch of a neuroanatomical architecture for COSMO is in progress. COSMO and its underlying hypotheses and predictions are tested through a series of experimental and computational studies, associating cognitive psychology, neurosciences, language sciences (descriptive and developmental phonetics, phonology) and information processing (statistical modeling, computational modeling).
