The Multisensory Communication program at The MARCS Institute investigates how information from our different senses contributes to communication.
We study how information from the senses is combined, represented and acted upon. We investigate such things as how seeing a talker helps make speech perception more robust.
We also study how speech and gestures are related; how emotion is conveyed by face, voice and gesture; and how information processing changes across the lifespan. We investigate processing at the signal, brain and behavioural levels.
