Functions of the left and right posterior temporal lobes during segmental and suprasegmental speech perception


Meyer, Martin (2008). Functions of the left and right posterior temporal lobes during segmental and suprasegmental speech perception. Zeitschrift für Neuropsychologie, 19(2):101-114.

Abstract

This manuscript reviews evidence from neuroimaging studies on elementary processes of speech perception and their implications for our understanding of the brain-speech relationship. Essentially, differential preferences of the left and right auditory-related cortex for rapidly and slowly changing acoustic cues that constitute (sub)segmental and suprasegmental parameters, e. g. phonemes, prosody, and rhythm. The adopted parameter-based research approach takes the early stages of speech perception as being of fundamental relevance for simple as well as complex language functions. The current state of knowledge necessitates an extensive revision of the classical neurologically oriented model of language processing that was aimed at identifying the neural correlates of linguistic components (e. g. phonology, syntax and semantics) more than at substantiating the importance of (supra)segmental information during speech perception.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
