Areas of Interest Decoding speech using neuronal oscillations; Hierarchical neuronal oscillators and the basis for cortical computation; Analysis of MEG signals recorded while performing a speech perception task; Predicting consonant confusions in noise; Closed‐loop auditory models for robust automatic speech recognition; Modeling damaged cochleae using speech‐governed methodologies.
Research Areas Dr. Ghitza’s current research focuses on the formulation of cortical computation principles that underlie the speech decoding process and that are capable of predicting human performance in speech perception tasks.
