Researchers report multiple areas of the frontal lobe control the muscles of vocalizations and could control complex speech. The findings refute the long-standing belief that only the primary motor cortex directly influences the larynx.
A specific Parkinson's related gene could be a driver behind vocal production problems associated with the disease. The findings could lead to earlier diagnosis and treatment of Parkinson's disease.
A new study reveals blind people remember speech and language better than sighted people. Researchers say blind people use language as a mental tool to remember information.
New research explores the different ways in which the brain distinguishes between music and speech.
A small cluster of neurons in the brainstem regulates tempo and coordinates vocalization with breathing.
The sound of speech elicits similar neural responses and stimulates the same brain regions in humans, guinea pigs, and macaque monkeys.
Matching the location of a face to the speech sounds a person is producing significantly increases our ability to understand them, especially in noisy environments.
A new study may answer why it is so difficult for us to learn a second language as we enter adulthood.
Like humans, zebra finches can recognize songs by their rhythmic pattern, even when the tempo is changed.
