Researchers report using rhythmic movements while speaking helps to improve speech skills in children.
Researchers have identified the location of dysfunctional brain networks that lead to impaired sentence production and word-finding in primary progressive aphasia (PPA). PPA can occur in those with neurodegenerative diseases, such as frontotemporal dementia and Alzheimer's disease. Mapping the networks allows clinicians to apply non-invasive brain stimulation to potentially improve speech in those with PPA.
A new study reveals passive exposure to foreign speech sounds over the course of several consecutive days helps enhance discrimination abilities and language learning.
Study reports a pervasive neuromodulation system strongly influences sound processing in a key auditory region of the brain. Findings suggest acetylcholine may assist in the brain's ability to distinguish speech from other noise.
Researchers report play sessions that include music improved processing of new speech sounds and music in infants.
Researchers report the brain controls speech production in a similar manner to how it controls the production of arm and hand movements. The findings could help to build better speech decoders for BMI, helping those who are unable to speak to find their voice.
While Western people tend to look at lip movement when communicating, a new study reports Japanese people are less influenced by looking at the mouth when communicating.
Baby talk can teach infants the relevant properties of language, a new study reports.
Researchers discover an unusual occupational hazard for teachers. Progressive speech and language problems are more prevalent in those who teach than those with Alzheimer's disease.
A recently evolved pattern of gene activity in the language and decision-making centers of the human brain is missing in...
Researchers are using robotic toys to help children with ASD develop language and social skills.
According to a new study, boys are at greater risk for delays in language development than girls.
