Shari Baum’s research interests focus on two main areas: neurolinguistics and speech science. Diverse methods are used – EEG/ERP, fMRI, behavioral tasks and eye-tracking – to investigate speech and prosodic processing, word recognition, and sentence and discourse processing in an effort to advance knowledge concerning the neural bases of language. Research on normal speech motor control and acoustic studies of speech adaptation to perturbation are also presently underway. Dr. Baum is also actively collaborating with an interdisciplinary team of researchers collaborating to broaden and deepen our understanding of multilingualism using cutting-edge tools and techniques. Shari Baum is the Vice Dean (Research) in the McGill University Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences.
