THE QUEEN MARGARET PROFESSORIAL LECTURES

Programme for 2015

The Queen Margaret Professorial Lectures offer fresh angles on topics of relevance and are designed to appeal to a wide audience.

‘TONGUE TWISTING’

Professor Alan Wrench
Articulate Instruments Ltd, Queen Margaret University

Professor Alan Wrench

What goes on inside our mouths when we speak? How do we control our tongue and produce that most human of attributes, reasoned speech?

The lecture will introduce some of the recent developments in the study of how speech is articulated. Professor Wrench will also highlight some of Queen Margaret University’s pioneering work which combines imaging techniques and 3D modelling - methods which are helping us better model the complex shapes of the tongue as it moves during speech, improving our understanding of the underlying process of speech motor control and helping to pave the way for more effective speech therapy.

When: Monday 30 March 2015, 5.30pm for a 6pm start
Where: Halle Lecture Theatre, Queen Margaret University, Musselburgh, EH21 6UU
