Abstract : Research activities during this period include: Data collection related to the interface between complex-sound production and perception, specifically, studies on speech acoustics including two experiments on voice- onset-time variability in productions by speakers of several languages, and a series on acoustical characteristics of emotional expression; data collection regarding individual differences in the effect of stimulus characteristic on relative ear advantages; continuing data analysis and new collections documenting individual differences in auditory evoked potentials, with details related to auditory-systems asymmetries preliminary tests regarding the match between behavioral measures of relative ear advantages and quantitative- electroencephalographic asymmetries observed during auditory stimulation; pilot testing using a combination of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance's (NMR) anatomical- imaging and chemical-spectral-analysis capabilities to study physiological activation in the human brain.
