Vocal Tract Images Reveal Neural Representations of Sensorimotor Transformation During Speech Imitation

Daniel Carey, Marc E. Miquel, Bronwen G. Evans, Patti Adank, Carolyn McGettigan
2017 Cerebral Cortex  
Univariate fMRI analyses revealed that regions including left inferior frontal gyrus were more active during sensorimotor transformation (ST) and production of nonnative vowels, compared with native vowels  ...  Here, we address this question by using real-time MR imaging (rtMRI) of the vocal tract and functional MRI (fMRI) of the brain in a speech imitation paradigm.  ...  Conflict of Interest: None declared.  ...

We used functional MRI to measure brain activity in 1-to 3-day-old newborns while they heard excerpts of Western tonal music and altered versions of the same excerpts.  ...  One way to address this question is to examine how these systems function at birth, when auditory experience is minimal.  ...  Neurophysiological studies using near-infrared optical topography (17) and magnetoencephalography (18) in 3-month-old infants showed more prominent activation to normal speech sounds than to flattened  ...

Towards the utilization of EEG as a brain imaging tool

Christoph M. Michel, Micah M. Murray
2012 NeuroImage  
However, the full capability of EEG is highly underestimated. Many combined EEG-fMRI studies use the EEG only as a spike-counter or an oscilloscope.  ...  By properly sampling and correctly analyzing this electric field, EEG can provide reliable information about the neuronal activity in the brain and the temporal dynamics of this activity in the millisecond  ...  Because it is the topography of the electric or magnetic field that is the only relevant information used for electric or magnetic source imaging, the so-called "reference-problem" of the EEG effectively  ...

Adult-like topography was observed in RSNs encompassing primary sensorimotor, visual and auditory cortices.  ...  Next, we regressed the subject-level datasets from an independent cohort of infants scanned at 37-43.5 weeks PMA against the group-level RSNs to test for the effects of age, sex and preterm birth.  ...  MR-compatible ear putty and earmuffs were used to provide additional acoustic noise attenuation.  ...

Acknowledgments Declaration of Conflicting Interests The authors declared that they had no conflicts of interest with respect to their authorship or the publication of this article.  ...  Specifically, motor effects on perception tend to be small (*10% modulation), have been demonstrated only in partially ambiguous acoustic stimuli (speech in noise), and at least a portion of this effect  ...  A study of human imitation using MEG is consistent with the fMRI studies and also provides information on timing of activation of these cortical areas (Nishitani & Hari, 2000) .  ...
