A new mouse study reveals a brain circuit that may enable high speed back and forth conversation. The findings could help shed new light on the causes of speech disorders.
Researchers reveal the area of the brain that controls our voice box, allowing us to alter the pitch of our speech. The insight could pave the way for advancing neuroprosthetics to allow people who can't speak, to express themselves in a naturalistic way.
Babytalk not only provides a baby with comfort and encouragement, it can also help facilitate early language development, a new study reports.
