The Neuroscience of Speech and Language

Speech, language, and music are defining characteristics of humans. Recent advances in neuroimaging have allowed researchers to examine brain activity during speech and language tasks, revealing the complexity of these processes. Research has also begun to better understand the neurobiological underpinnings of speech and language … Continue reading

Learning-induced neural plasticity of speech processing before birth

Learning, the foundation of adaptive and intelligent behavior, is based on plastic changes in neural assemblies, reflected by the modulation of electric brain responses. In infancy, auditory learning implicates the formation and strengthening of neural long-term memory traces, improving discrimination … Continue reading
