Frank Guenther
Frank Guenther is Professor of Speech Language, & Hearing Sciences and Biomedical Engineering at Boston University and a Research Affiliate at the Picower Institute for Learning and Memory at MIT. His research combines theoretical modeling with behavioral and neuroimaging experiments to characterize the neural computations underlying speech. He is the originator of the DIVA model, which provides a quantitative account of the neural computations underlying speech motor control and their breakdown in communication disorders such as stuttering and apraxia of speech. He also develops brain-machine interfaces to restore speech communication to individuals suffering from locked-in syndrome, characterized by complete paralysis with intact cognition.
