Current Research Interests:

Professor Huber was trained in the collection and analysis of physiologic data from the speech subsystems (respiratory, laryngeal, and supralaryngeal). Specifically, she uses kinematic, aerodynamic, and acoustic analyses to describe how these subsystems function in speech. Professor Huber's primary area of research is speech motor control in both normal individuals and individuals with motor speech disorders. Currently, she is working on an NIH grant to study the respiratory and lip and jaw kinematics of normal speakers and individuals with Parkinson's disease. The aims of the grant are to examine whether increasing sound pressure level elicits a more normal kinematic pattern from individuals with Parkinson's disease and to determine if the method used to cue individuals to increase sound pressure level affects the physiologic mechanisms used to achieve the higher sound pressure level.
