Cracking the social code of speech prosody

New paper out this month in PNAS, in which we use new audio software (CLEESE) to deploy reverse-correlation in the space of speech prosody, and uncover robust and shared mental representations of trustworthiness and dominance in a speaker’s voice.  The paper is open-access, data and analysis code freely available at and the CLEESE software is open-source and available as a free download here.
