"Summa Cum Laude"

Stephan R. Kuberski (left) defended his thesis "Fundamental motor laws and dynamics of speech" with summa cum laude (highest distinctions)! Congratulations to Dr. Stephan Kuberski - and his supervisor Prof. Dr. Adamantios Gafos (right). In his thesis, Stephan demonstrates that speech movements obey the same fundamental laws as movements from other domains of motor control do and that the relation between the phonological description of simple utterances and the corresponding speech motor action is non-unique.
