Amodal Atypical Neural Oscillatory Activity in Dyslexia: A Cross-Linguistic Perspective
(Clinical Psychological Science, 2017)
It has been proposed that atypical neural oscillations in both the auditory and the visual modalities could explain why some individuals fail to learn to read and suffer from developmental dyslexia. However, the role of ...
Out-of-Synchrony Speech Entrainment in Developmental Dyslexia
(Human Brain Mapping, 2016)
Developmental dyslexia is a reading disorder often characterized by reduced awareness of speech units. Whether the neural source of this phonological disorder in dyslexic readers results from the malfunctioning of the ...
Is there a common oscillatory brain mechanism for producing and predicting language?
(Language, Cognition and Neuroscience, 2016)
Recent proposals have suggested that language prediction is supported by the neurophysiological mechanisms involved in language production. Both prediction and production in language imply information processing percolating ...
Delta(but not theta)-band cortical entrainment involves speech-specific processing
(European Journal of Neuroscience, 2018)
Cortical oscillations phase-align to the quasi-rhythmic structure of the speech envelope. This speech-brain entrainment has been reported in two frequency bands, that is both in the theta band (4-8 Hz) and in the delta ...
Phase−amplitude coupling between theta and gamma oscillations adapts to speech rate
(Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, 2019)
Low- and high-frequency cortical oscillations play an important role in speech processing. Low-frequency neural oscillations in the delta (<4Hz) and theta (4–8 Hz) bands entrain to the prosodic and syllabic rates of speech, ...
Neocortical activity tracks the hierarchical linguistic structures of self-produced speech during reading aloud
How the human brain uses self-generated auditory information during speech production is rather unsettled. Current theories of language production consider a feedback monitoring system that monitors the auditory consequences ...
