Neural adaptation to accented speech: prefrontal cortex aids attunement in auditory cortices

bioRxiv

Abstract

Speech is a complex and ambiguous acoustic signal that varies significantly within and across speakers. A prevalent and ubiquitous example of such variation is accented speech, to which humans adapt extremely rapidly. The goal of this study is to uncover the neurobiological bases of the...read more

Down Syndrome

Down syndrome is a chromosome disorder associated either with an extra chromosome 21 or an effective trisomy for chromosome 21. Clinical manifestations include hypotonia, short stature, brachycephaly, upslanting palpebral fissures, epicanthus, Brushfield spots on the iris, protruding tongue, small ears, short, broad hands, fifth finger clinodactyly, Simian crease, and moderate to severe intellectual disability. Discover the latest research on Down syndrome here.

Chromosomal Abnormalities

Chromosome abnormalities can be classified as either structural or numerical. Numerical abnormalities include duplications or deletion of a pair of chromosomes, such as Down Syndrome. Structural abnormalities include missing, extra or switched parts of a chromosome. Discover the latest research on chromosomal abnormalities here.
