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 Resonances NMR anatomical- imaging and chemical-spectral-analysis capabilities to study physiological activation in the human brain.
