A new algorithm that enables precise measurement of the pitch frequency of a speech signal, a crucial parameter for identifying emotions and diagnosing illnesses, has been introduced by researchers at HSE Campus in Nizhny Novgorod. This method can operate in a noisy environment, in real time and with fewer computing resources than any currently existing analogues. The results of the study have been published in the Journal of Communications Technology and Electronics.
An international group of scientists including researchers from HSE University has proposed a novel approach to rehabilitating patients with motor disorders.

Participants in the study who expressed higher concerns about their language function compared to their memory faced greater difficulties with language tasks.
