In collaboration with Dr. Jeremy Greenlee (PI) at the University of Iowa, Dr. Behroozmand
(co-I) has been awarded an R01 NIH grant to study the "Neural Mechanisms of Vocal
Communication in the Human Brain". The goal of this research project is to provide
unique insights into the structure and function of the human sensory-motor network
that underlies effective speech communication. This research is a significant contribution
to developing novel treatment methods for neurological patients with speech disorders
such as Parkinson's disease, stuttering, aphasia, schizophrenia and autism.
