Arthur G. Samuel

LSA 104: Auditory word recognition

Arthur Samuel received his Ph.D. from UCSD in 1979. He spent 10 years on the faculty at Yale, and for the last 17 years he has been a professor at Stony Brook. He served as Editor of the Journal of Memory and Language from 2001-2004. His research interests include perception, language, and attention. The majority of his research has been at the intersection of these three domains: spoken word recognition. He has published extensively on lexical influences on phonetic perception. Current research foci include studies of how adults add new items to the mental lexicon, and how experience with non-canonical phonetic exemplars can induce changes in the boundaries between phonetic categories through a process of perceptual learning.
