Postdoctoral fellow, University of Toronto

Dr. Belyk studies the vocal system of the human brain. Humans have a degree of control over the larynx that is unparalleled among primates. Acquiring flexible and voluntary control over the larynx was a key step in the evolution of our singular capacity for verbal communication, without which speech and song would be impossible.
