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.
Rather than being born with a fixed set of communication skills, bats learn how to communicate, a new study reports.
A new study reports wild bonobos communicate in a similar manner to human infants, using a high pitched call which requires context in order to be understood.
According the researchers, a baby's cry not only commands our attention, it also has an effect on how adults complete cognitive tasks.
A new study investigates how babies learn to, and start to, speak.
Researchers use zebra finches to study speech and vocal impairments associated with Huntington's disease.
Babytalk not only provides a baby with comfort and encouragement, it can also help facilitate early language development, a new study reports.
A new study identifies neural cells that allow mouse pups to generate ultrasonic calls. Mice that lack the cells are mute. Researchers believe the cries of human babies could depend on similar connections.
