Dr. Lotto’s research focuses on the general cognitive and perceptual processes involved in the perception of complex sounds such as speech and music. He is the founder of the Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience Society and organizes and annual meeting of the Society, which brings together scientists from varied fields to discuss the latest research into audition, speech communication and music. His current projects include developing and applying a novel measure of speech rhythm to a variety of disorders (e.g., Parkinson’s Disease, Stuttering, Autism), studying the use of high frequency energy (above 5000 Hz) in the perception of speech and music, and examining the psychological validity of proposed structures in music. FUN FACT: Dr. Lotto’s favorite past time is making up false fun facts about himself, such as this one.
