National Institue of Health Grant awarded to Stephanie Borrie
Feb 28, 2017
Stephanie Borrie was recently awarded a three-year NIH NIDCD R21 award for her project, “Speech rhythm entrainment in the context of dysathria.” Conversational entrainment—the propensity for dialogue partners to modify their behaviour to become more similar to one another—is a powerful communication phenomenon that influences many cognitive and social functions, leading either to successful conversation or, if disrupted, to conversational breakdowns. This project draws on translational methodology from signal processing engineering to develop, validate, and examine an automated method to quantify speech rhythm entrainment in the context of dysarthria.
