60% of authors say they can hear their characters' voices as they write. Some even say they could enter into a dialogue with their characters, and sometimes their characters 'talk back'. Researchers explore why this phenomenon occurs.
Vocal recordings of asymptomatic coronavirus patients reveal potential indicators of COVID-19 infection. Preliminary results hint at a biomarker in the vocal system coordination that can indicate the presence of COVID-19.
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.
EEG study reveals both hearing people and deaf signer language users showed a common neural mechanism when it came to language errors.
Studying auditory regions and brain pathways in humans, apes, and monkeys, researchers have identified a language pathway that interconnects the auditory cortex with frontal lobe regions. The language pathway in other primates suggests an evolutionary basis in auditory cognition and vocal communication.
Aerosolized particles produced while speaking may be enough to transmit coronavirus infection by those who are asymptomatic.
Using Cappella recordings, researchers discover humans have developed complementary neural systems in each hemisphere for auditory stimuli.
The brain activity response to sound in older children with hearing loss was lower than their peers with normal hearing.
Study reveals the dynamic patterns of information flow between critical language regions of the brain.
Ear infections and other conditions that cause hearing loss to one ear can cause nerve damage if left untreated. The damage may render the sufferer to difficulties in speech recognition and processing.
