Hemispheric specializations affect interhemispheric speech sound integration during duplex perception


Preisig, Basil C; Sjerps, Matthias J (2019). Hemispheric specializations affect interhemispheric speech sound integration during duplex perception. Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, 145(3):EL190.

Abstract

The present study investigated whether speech-related spectral information benefits from initially predominant right or left hemisphere processing. Normal hearing individuals categorized speech sounds composed of an ambiguous base (perceptually intermediate between /ga/ and /da/), presented to one ear, and a disambiguating low or high F3 chirp presented to the other ear. Shorter response times were found when the chirp was presented to the left ear than to the right ear (inducing initially right-hemisphere chirp processing), but no between-ear differences in strength of overall integration. The results are in line with the assumptions of a right hemispheric dominance for spectral processing.
