  • Bilingualism and the Size of Auditory Cortical Areas

    Bilingualism has become common. Infants' auditory cortex undergoes structural maturation during the first three years (Yakovlev & Lecours, 1967). They develop an auditory capacity to specifically recognize acoustic patterns used in their ...

  • Robustness of rhythmic perception in audition

    Acoustic rhythms are a fundamental feature in our acoustic environment, including in speech and music. Auditory perception could profit from entrainment of cortical neural oscillations to rhythmicity in the acoustic input, which aligns optimal ...

  • Speech computations and lexical storage

    The mental storage of lexical representations faces a major challenge, which is to reliably transfer these representations among different speakers via the noisy channel of speech communication (Shannon, 1948). It has been largely demonstrated ...
