Pablo Arias is a final-year PhD student in perception and cognitive science at the audio research lab, IRCAM, in Paris. We discuss Pablo’s work on the how smiling changes the voice, and how people perceive smiling and non-smiling voices.
First Pablo explains what cognitive science, neuroscience and perception are, and why research into these areas is so important. He then takes us through the aims, methods, and results of his latest research paper into smiling in the voice, and we discuss the academic and technological implications of his work.
