The science of communication
Do women and men have different speech patterns/styles? Do men really interrupt more? Do women really defer more if there is an overlap? In other words, do gender (or cultural) differences really exist – and if so, what are they and what is their significance for the way we communicate?
Sophie is the Director of the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience. She investigates human communication and the human brain, with a particular emphasis on the neurobiological basis of vocal communication and how this can go wrong. She is particularly interested in using models of auditory processing to inform her work and in addressing both verbal and non-verbal aspects of vocal communication. She has pioneered the study of the human voice as a social signal, and has recently started to address the ways that non-verbal emotional expressions, such as laughter, are used socially.
