Speech Production Lab
In a recent interview titled The Power of Speech with International Innovation magazine, Dr. Yunusova, elaborated on her research program and her personal motivation in working with individuals diagnosed with neurodegenerative diseases affecting their speech production. Dr. Yunusova’s research mainly centres on early diagnosis and effective subtyping of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), the links between speech motor control and cognitive deterioration in ALS and developing new treatment methods using innovative visual feedback methodologies.
Dr. Yunusova is currently working on a NIH-funded longitudinal research study at Sunnybrook Research Institute to develop assistive technology for individuals diagnosed with ALS who have lost their ability to speak as the disease progresses.
