Research Interests

Dr. Brumberg is interested in understanding the neural mechanisms underlying speech production, through electrophysiological and behavioral studies. He currently directs an NIH funded research program to develop brain-machine interfaces for control of augmentative and alternative communication devices using electroencephalography (EEG). He is also interested in studying the role of interactive computer programs and interfaces in speech research and rehabilitation, specifically those employing artificial speech synthesis for studying speech production in speakers with and without impairment.
