Auditory and speech processing occurs in parallel in the brain, researchers report. The findings contradict the belief that the brain processes auditory information before transferring it into linguistic information.
People who suffer from synethesia are also more sensitive to the association between the sound of words and visual shapes, researchers report.
A new technology known as sonogenetics can control neural activity by using sound frequencies. The technology could be used to non-invasively treat a range of neurological conditions, including Parkinson's disease and epilepsy.
Temporal sound processing can be maintained in mouse models of congenital hearing loss with exposure to broadband sounds embedded with pauses, a new study reports.
Researchers have identified a mechanism that may explain what is commonly known as the Mozart Effect, where sound input is linked to developing cognitive function.
Researchers investigate how the brain responds to complex audio-visual stimuli.
