Biography

Jared completed his PhD in Communication Sciences and Disorders concentrating in Neuroscience at the University of Memphis in 2022, focusing his research on the interaction of higher order processing (e.g., memory, language, etc.) on the encoding of lower level sensory information, utilizing speech-in-noise paradigms and nonlinear dynamics of speech categorization in categorical perception of speech tasks. After completing his PhD, he moved to Hearing Sciences - Scottish Section for postdoctoral research in using EEG to investigate neural underpinnings of conversation.

Expertise Summary

I have utilized electroencephalography (EEG) to research how individuals process speech. This process has involved learning theoretical and practical analyses including: source analysis, connectivity measures, time-frequency analysis, and brainstem measures. These have further been accompanied by a secondary area of acoustic phonetics to develop and analyze stimuli for use in research projects.

Research Summary

My research focuses broadly on the interaction of "low-level" encoding (e.g., sensory encoding, motor planning) with "higher-order" cognition (e.g., prediction, language, etc.) while individuals… read more

Current Research

My research focuses broadly on the interaction of "low-level" encoding (e.g., sensory encoding, motor planning) with "higher-order" cognition (e.g., prediction, language, etc.) while individuals process speech and language, using behavioral and neurophysiologic techniques.
