Research:
Dr. Reilly’s directs the Speech Lab and investigates the brain’s control of the articulators during speech production and how this control is disrupted in speakers with different neurologic diseases.  His research focuses on the perceptual bases of motor control for speech and how perceptual information is incorporated into the serial processes for producing the sound and syllable sequences that comprise speech communication.

Scholarly Interests:
Neural substrates of spoken language
Motor control of speech production
Sensorimotor integration
Serial control for speech
Speech Acoustics
