The Institute of Human Sciences welcomes you to the second of four Inaugural lectures to celebrate the conferment of Professorships in the Institute of Human Sciences at the University of Wolverhampton. The lectures have been planned to take place throughout 2019 and will act as a celebration of the careers and contributions of our professoriate.
The second lecture will be delivered by Professor Maria Uther, Professor of Psychology at University of Wolverhampton. In this lecture, we take a tour of the world of sound, speech and their interaction with digital technologies. Professor Uther’s talk will demonstrate why sounds are so important to our perception of the world, how our brain processes sounds, how we acquire new speech sounds as well as look at applications of technology that interact with speech learning and sound perception. The event promises to be highly engaging, entertaining and will give us new insight into the way we perceive sound in our environment.
