Vincent Gracco’s research focuses on the neural and sensorimotor mechanisms of spoken language production, perception and their interaction using a variety of techniques including functional and structural neuroimaging, transcranial magnetic stimulation, electroencephalography, auditory and somatosensory perturbation, electromyography and kinematics. He is also studying neurobehavioral changes associated with speech motor learning and speech motor disorders. Current research areas focus on the development and mechanisms of sensorimotor control for spoken language, sensorimotor dysfunctions associated with stuttering and other speech motor disorders, neuroplasticity and sensorimotor learning, bilingualism, and the relationship between language and music.
