A new study considers how lexical tones can affect an infant's ability to associated words with objects.
Researchers reveal the area of the brain that controls our voice box, allowing us to alter the pitch of our speech. The insight could pave the way for advancing neuroprosthetics to allow people who can't speak, to express themselves in a naturalistic way.
Researchers embark on new research in order to better understand the relationship between sensorimotor action and perception.
Researchers investigate whether speaking a different native language has an effect on how we hear music.
A new study reports the vocal muscles of Bengalese finches change function to help produce different parameters of sounds, much like an opera singer.
