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

Mass Eye and Ear researchers Dr. Kristina Simonyan and Dr. Davide Valeriani were awarded a grant from the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University to organize a virtual seminar on September 10-11, 2020, which explored Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs) for transforming the treatment of dystonia. The seminar (by invitation only) brought together a diverse, interdisciplinary group of researchers from the fields of brain imaging, BCIs, computer science, and biotechnology, and clinicians from the fields of neurology, neurosurgery, otolaryngology, and speech-language pathology to explore a roadmap for transforming dystonia treatment.

Harvard’s diverse neuroscience community — hundreds of basic researchers and physician-scientists, are engaged in the process of discovery across campuses and disciplines in Cambridge and the Greater Boston Area.
Dr. Simonyan was features as the Neuroscientist of the Week #60. Read more 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.

Great to see our colleagues worldwide for the MDS-StudyGroup @movedisorder #MDSMovingAlong t.co/Qb6IFJ7Saw
- We extended our deadline to contribute to the Frontiers Research Topic on Neurotechnologies for Human Augmentation. You have until the end of 2020 to contribute to it! #BCI work is particularly welcomed. t.co/VezNNVWtjH
- This work could enable the development of brain-computer interfaces (😍) that help us assess our decisions. Here is a video presentation of the poster: t.co/t4VPPqnCol Big shout to my co-authors @LenaOflynn @alexisworthley and @SimonyanLab. 4/4
- Excited to share that our paper "The large‐scale structural connectome of task‐specific focal dystonia" is out! t.co/cJLwALs22v @SimonyanLab
