The Cognitive, Auditory, and Neural Bases of Language and Speech (CANBLS) Research Group brings together researchers from Duke campus and medical school to explore in depth the many aspects that contribute to our unique ability to generate, and communicate via language and speech. The aim is to share ongoing research and inspire collaborations across campus combining the different research approaches represented in the group (developmental, clinical, neuroimaging, engineering, etc.) to push our understanding of the cognitive, auditory, and neural bases of language and speech.
