========================================================================== Haskins Laboratories, located in New Haven, Connecticut, is a private, non-profit research laboratory founded in 1935. We have been continuously engaged in interdisciplinary basic research for over fifty years, including pioneering work on the acoustics of speech, the development of speech synthesis and its application to the study of speech perception. Currently, most of the Laboratories' research projects are focused on problems in human communication and related topics, including speech perception , speech production, reading, linguistics, motor behavior, cognitive science, nonlinear dynamics, medical imaging, functional MRI, etc. Our WWW home page provides an overview of the Laboratories. Special features of our web site include a virtual tour of the Pattern Playback, an early talking machine; a description of research on SineWave Synthesis that includes an on-line perception experiment; an interactive tutorial on our Articulatory Synthesis vocal tract model; and information on V-TV, the Vocal Tract Visualizer CD-ROM that is presently under development, including some sample MRI images.
