Computational neuroscience of speech recognition

Abstract:

Physical variability of speech combined with its perceptual constancy make speech recognition a challenging task. The human auditory brain, however, is able to perform speech recognition effortlessly. This thesis aims to understand the precise computational mechanisms that allow the auditory brain to do so. In particular, we look for the minimal subset of sub-cortical auditory brain areas that allow the primary auditory cortex to learn 'good representations' of speech-like auditory objects...
