Lab equipment

The SLS research group is generally relying on the English Department’s sound laboratory, which has been used primarily for research in second language acquisition. However, Míša Hejná has recently obtained various grants including funding to enhance the phon lab equipment. Our lab therefore now includes:

  • One sound-proof recording studio
  • A micro Speech Research Ultrasound
  • Electroglottography (EGG) equipment​
  • Electropalatography (EPG) equipment
  • Complete Aerodynamic Systems (including oral and nasal airflow machines)
  • A screening Audiometer (see also this page for an internet-based screening tool)
  • A nasality microphone
  • Oral and nasal endoscopy systems
  • Throat microphones
  • Various tools to measure biomarkers (such as grip strength, strength of pulmonic exhaling, manual nimbleness and reaction time, blood pressure, height and weight)
  • Various new recorders, mics and headsets

In addition to this, our affiliated lab, the Interdisciplinary Lab, has equipment which is also available to our lab members:

  • Eye-tracking
  • Skin-conductance
  • Respiratory belts
  • Video recording
