Graduate Research Degrees
The Division of Psychology and Language Sciences undertakes world-leading research and teaching in mind, behaviour and language. It brings together researchers in a range of disciplines such as cognition, neuroscience, linguistics, education, communication, medicine, health, phonetics and development - to understand both basic and applied problems. Our work attracts staff and students from around the world. Together, they create an outstanding and vibrant environment for both study and research, taking advantage of cutting-edge resources such as a behavioural neuroscience laboratory, a centre for brain imaging, and extensive laboratories for research in speech and language, perception and cognition. Our research is funded by by UK Research Councils, charities such as the Wellcome Trust, government departments, the EU and the NHS. More information about research degrees.

ESection is a free program for calculating and displaying spectral and other related analyses of sections of a speech signal. It can be used to demonstrate the different spectral properties of elements of speech. It can also calculate an LPC spectrum, autocorrelation and cepstrum analyses, and can display the signal as a waveform or as a spectrogram. It automatically finds formant and fundamental frequency values.
