Electrophysiological correlates of handedness and speech perception contrasts






Neuropsychologia 23(1): 77-86

Electrophysiological correlates of handedness and speech perception contrasts

Auditory evoked responses (AER) were recorded from left- and right-handed subjects who listened to consonant sounds from different phonetic categories. AER recorded at parietal scalp regions indicated both groups differentiated categorical differences between speech sounds. However, hand preferences did not affect hemisphere responses to speech sounds.

The present study explored whether the large variability found in L2...

Aging usually decreases the ability to understand language under difficult listening conditions. However, aging is also associated with increased between-subject variability. Here, we studied potential sources of inter-individual differences and i...

The ability to perceive for suprasegmental and eight segmental speech pattern contrasts was measured on 16 adult cochlear implantees using the Nucleus multichannel prosthesis with either F0-F2 (n = 9) or F0-F1-F2 (n = 7) coding. The results of thi...
