"Animal’s Brain can follow the beat: investigating the link between vocal rhythm and brain oscillations." - By Théophane Piette
What is this work about? The relationship between speech rhythmicity and neural oscillations is an important component of speech perception, and especially of comprehension. However, even though the presence of the same rhythm has been described in non-human primates, and neural oscillations are a basic property of animals’ brains, we still do not know how the brain of animals is processing rhythmic information. Therefore, by identifying similarities and differences in rhythm, as well as its connection with brain oscillations in animal species, we hope to uncover the common rules that govern the rhythmic production and processing of vocal signals in animals. These results will help us understand how speech fits or detached itself from these basic rules, giving us new insight into the evolution of language complex hierarchical structure and a better understanding of brains’ perception mechanisms of vocal signals.
