  Sophie Scott

Sophie Scott is a Wellcome Trust senior fellow at University College London and deputy director of UCL’s Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, where she researches voices, speech and laughter.

Scott is also head of the Speech Communication Group at the institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, where she investigates the neural basis of vocal communication – how our brains process the information in speech and voices and how our brains control the production of our voice. She is also interested in the expression of emotion in the voice and, in particular, research in recent years has focused on the neuroscience of laughter.

Known for her public engagement work, Scott refers to herself as a “standup scientist,” and has appeared on the BBC Radio Four program “The Life Scientific.” She has given a Friday Evening Discourse at the Royal Institution on the science of laughter. That work has also toured fairs and exhibitions as part of the Laughter_lab project.

Scott is a member of the British Psychological Society, the Society for Neuroscience, the Cognitive Neuroscience Society, and the Experimental Psychology Society. She was elected a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences in 2012, and has been awarded a UCL Provost’s Award for Public Engagement.

Scott received her PhD in cognitive science at UCL. . . . short bio
