Postdoc Matthew Masapollo presents at Boston Speech Motor Control Symposium 2019

Postdoctoral Research Associate, Matthew Masapollo, co-authored and presented two posters at the 2019 Boston Speech Motor Control Symposium, one on complex interactions between speech production and perception and the roles of somatosensory feedback, and one on the timing and sequencing of speech movements and the contribution of working memory to speech sequence assembly.  

Postdoc Matthias Heyne sharing speech production insights in Puerto Rico

Guenther lab postdoc Matthias Heyne recently (January 21-27, 2019) went on tour to Puerto Rico with the MIT Festival Jazz Ensemble where they presented several concerts with Grammy-nominated alto saxophone player Miguel Zenon and taught Puerto Rican High students about topics ranging from Math, Physics, and Climate Change, to Computer Science. Matthias contributed presentations on […]

Axe Throwing anyone?

After making a number of submissions to journals, we all needed to blow off some steam. Axe throwing sounded like a good idea, and no that’s not a euphemism. We really went to throw axes at targets, with a little friendly competition to boot. Everyone had a great time and we’re hoping to make this […]

Dr. Elaine Kearney to present at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association’s 2019 Pathways Program

Dr. Elaine Kearney, a postdoctoral researcher in the Guenther lab, has been selected to participate in the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association’s 2019 Pathways Program! The Pathways Program aims to mentor early-career clinical scientists in establishing strong foundations for an independent research career. It consists of two phases: an initial 2-day conference held in Maryland in June […]

Research featured in Neurology Today

Our study on brain structure anomalies in children who stutter as well as those who recover, a collaboration with the Chang Group at University of Michigan, is featured in Neurology Today. CORTICAL MORPHOLOGY of children who stutter: The areas show significant group differences in left hemisphere cortical morphology: aCO=anterior central operculum; midPMC=middle premotor cortex; preSMA=presupplementary […]

Take me out to the ball game!

The Guenther Lab recently left the confines of the lab to take part in an all American pastime – baseball! We are fortunate enough to be steps away from historic Fenway Park so we got ourselves organized, thanks to Dr. Matthias Heyne, and headed to see the Boston Red Sox battle the Baltimore Orioles in […]
