Speech on the Brain – The Neurobiology of Speech Perception

Sophie K. Scott, Ph.D

Speech Communication Laboratory

UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience

Friday October 23, 2015, 2:00pm

BMC 5.102

In this talk I will try to outline how the proposed streams of anatomical and functional processing in primate auditory cortex may be relevant for understanding the neurobiology of human speech perception. I will address the distinct involvement of rostral/caudal streams in the perception of speech and the control of speech production, and I will address how this interacts with hemispheric asymmetries in speech processing.
