Chris Heffner in Psychological Science

Congratulations to Chris Heffner, who is among the authors of an article now out in Psychological Science: "Long-Term Temporal Tracking of Speech Rate Affects Spoken-Word Recognition," by Melissa M. Baese-Berk, Christopher C. Heffner, Laura C. Dilley, Mark A. Pitt, Tuuli H. Morrill, and J. Devin McAuley. The article finds that, when a portion of speech is sped up or slowed down, the rate of the surrounding speech influences what words are heard.
