We are investigating the neural, articulatory and acoustic correlates of imitating unfamiliar speech. Using fMRI and real-time imaging of the vocal tract, combined with in-scanner acoustic recordings, we are measuring training outcomes related to producing native and non-native vowels. We are using univariate fMRI analyses and segmentation of vocal tract boundaries to address these questions. We will also employ RSA methods to explore representation of vowel category dimensions across rtMRI and fMRI datasets.
