Areas of interest
Oral sensorimotor system; computer modelling of head and neck functions including speech, swallowing, chewing, breathing; development of assistive technology to improve the predictability of surgical treatments; experimental validation of computer models of speech, swallowing, and chewing; adoption of advanced simulation techniques to surgical planning workflows.
Lectures and laboratories provide a systematic study of the gross anatomy, neuroanatomy, and physiology of the respiratory, phonatory, resonatory, and articulatory subsystems as related to speech production and swallowing. (Restricted to MScSLP students only.) Not open to students with credit in SPA 502.
Study of theoretical and applied aspects of acoustic phonetics, speech perception and speech production, including theory and application of methods (physiological, acoustic and perceptual) to record and analyze speech behaviors. Prerequisite or corequisite: CSD 502 or equivalent. (Restricted to MScSLP students only.) Not open to students with credit in SPA 505.
