Research Facilities

  The Word and Sound Learning Lab is a 200 square foot facility in the    Stewart Childrens Center housing a general work area for research assistants and storage for stimuli, data, and clinical tests. The lab contains six computer workstations networked to a laser printer. Five of the workstations are used primarily for data entry, statistical analysis and manuscript preparation. The sixth computer workstation is networked to a color scanner and printer to support creation of visual stimuli. A second room is used primarily for video storage and contains one computer workstation set up for data collection. A second facility housed in the Dole Human Development Center contains five computer workstations networked to a laser printer. Four of the stations are used primarily for data entry, statistical analysis and manuscript preparation. The fifth computer workstation is equipped with Kay Elemetrics CSL hardware and software to support high-quality acoustic recordings for acoustic analysis of speech samples and preparation of speech stimuli for experimental studies. Six portable data collection systems, including a portable DAT, table-top speakers and high-quality head-mounted microphones, are available for data collection on-site in the Schiefelbusch Speech-Language-Hearing clinic and off-campus at community locations.
