Building Sound Environments that Support Speech Perception for Individuals with MCI

Info about the Project

Our goal is to improve the speech perception of individuals with mild cognitive impairment in a therapeutic facility through the design of the sound environment. Discerning speech is complex task that is an interplay between the receiver's cognitive and physical abilities and the quality of the sound signal. By understanding the unique difficulties that individuals with MCI face in discerning speech, we aim to design technologies embedded in the physical environment to improve the quality of the speech signal in the space.
