Learning a new language can affect musical processing in children, researchers report. Findings support the theory that musical and linguistic functions are closely linked in the developing brain.
Using HD-TACS brain stimulation, researchers influenced the integration of speech sounds by changing the balancing processes between the two brain hemispheres.
People with dyslexia experience difficulties when acoustic variation was added to speech sounds. In the absence of the variation, neural speech sound processing was consistent between dyslexic and typical readers. Difficulties in detecting linguistically relevant information during acoustic variation in speech may contribute to a dyslexic person's deficits in forming native language phoneme representations during infancy.
Research suggests a time-locked encoding mechanism may have evolved for speech processing in humans. The processing mechanism appears to be tuned to the native language as a result of extensive exposure to the language environment during early development.
A new study casts doubt on common theories about speech control. Researchers discovered it's not just the right hemisphere that analyzes how we speak, the left hemisphere also plays a significant role.
The patterns of reasoning deceptive people use may serve as indicators of truthfulness, a new AI algorithm discovered. Researchers say reasoning intent is more reliable than verbal changes and personal differences when trying to determine deception.
When a person listens to another person talking, their brain waves alter to select specific features of the speaker's voice and tune out other voices.
Study reveals the dynamic patterns of information flow between critical language regions of the brain.
Brain responses from 6 month old infants with an inherited dyslexia risk differed from those without the risk factor and also predicted their reading ability later in childhood, a new study reveals.
Musical training may enhance the ability to process speech in noisy settings, a new study reveals.
