Jürgen Konczak, PhD, professor in the School of Kinesiology and director of the Human Sensorimotor Control Laboratory (HSCL), was invited to present at the Center for Translational Neurophysiology of Speech and Communication in Ferrara, Italy. The center studies the methods the brain uses to process and understand the communicative behaviors of other individuals to efficiently decode brain signals related to communicative intentions (speech).
Dr. Konczak’s presentation highlighted the translational medicine efforts of HSCL to provide a non-invasive treatment for people with laryngeal dystonia, which impairs speech.
