Sophie Scott

Organisation(s)

Overview

Sophie is the Director of the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, and investigates human communication and the human brain, with a particular emphasis on the neurobiological basis of vocal communication and how this can go wrong. Sophie is particularly interested in using models of auditory processing to inform her work, and in addressing both verbal and non-verbal aspects of vocal communication. Sophie has pioneered the study of the human voice as a social signal, and has recently started to address the ways that non verbal emotional expressions like laughter are used socially.
