Caterina Petrone


Scientific interests

My research is aimed at investigating the cognitive, physiological and linguistic contraints underlying prosody production and perception. Specifically, I focus on:

  • the phonology/phonetics interface of prosody
  • the effects of emotional prosody on physiological parameters and its interaction with linguistic prosody
  • the effects of individual variability (as resulting from cognitive differences) on prosodic planning
  • prosody in speech pathology (in particular, I work on Multiple Sclerosis)
