Language and Cognitive Processes, jointly with Cognitive Neuroscience of Language, is launching a call for submissions for a special issue on:
Speech Recognition in Adverse Conditions
This special issue is a unique opportunity to promote the development of a unifying thematic framework for understanding the perceptual, cognitive and neuro-physiological mechanisms underpinning speech recognition in adverse conditions. In particular, we seek papers focusing on the recognition of acoustically degraded speech (e.g., speech in noise, “accented” or motor-disordered speech), speech recognition under cognitive load (e.g., divided attention, memory load) and speech recognition by theoretically relevant populations (e.g., children, elderly or non-native listeners). We welcome both cognitive and neuroscientific perspectives on the topic that report strong and original empirical data firmly grounded in theory.
Guest editors: Sven Mattys, Ann Bradlow, Matt Davis, and Sophie Scott.
Submission deadline: 30 November 2010.
