The research focus of the Simonyan Laboratory is two-fold: identification of the central mechanisms responsible for speech production and elucidation of the pathophysiology of neurological voice and speech disorders.
We have new studies, and we are recruiting particpants! Join us to move the research forward! More info here

The neuroscience community at Harvard is brimming with talented and interesting individuals, each with their own unique stories on how they got here, what motivates them, what passions and dreams they have, who inspires them and what they do for fun.
Read here about Arman Simonyan, who visited and worked in the lab this Summer.

- We are grateful to 300+ participants with #Dystonia who completed this survey! We'd like to involve as many participants as possible. Please RT, spread the word & complete the Qs on the psychological & psychiatric history associated with #Dystonia t.co/KcKZgMyDkk
- @GregoryHickok Neither (sensory or motor) is complete without each other. Either is equally important & independent. Lumping them together into 1 & only definition removes the granularity of our understanding how each system works & interacts. Just take a look at various neurological disorders.
- @GregoryHickok Eg, Some mammals don’t have laryngeal motor cortex (cats, dog), and those who do (monkeys) lack its full functionality like in humans - meaning motor cortex much more evolutionary evolved and complex structure than its sensory counterpart. Not vice versa....
- @GregoryHickok What’s the use of sensation without the motor cortex if you can’t move or talk or do anything else voluntarily once your motor cortex or its output is damaged?
