Welcome to SHBT
The strange but familiar fact that an idea, an emotion, a warning, a song, can travel from one person’s brain to another depends on the dauntingly complex, deeply fascinating chain reaction known as human communication. At the Harvard-MIT Program in Speech and Hearing Bioscience and Technology (SHBT), we study every link in that chain, at every level of understanding, from biochemistry to cognition.
