Photo 3 [17 April 2018] A new study by Anne Keitel, Joachim Gross and Christoph Kayser (CCNi) uncovers neural mechanisms during natural speech comprehension. By focusing on stimulus-specific timescales and measuring comprehension on individual trials, we show that distinct neural and linguistic timescales relate to speech encoding along the auditory-motor pathway. The findings suggest spatially and temporally distinct brain mechanisms that directly shape our comprehension. The study was published in PLoS Biology: Keitel, Gross, & Kayser (2018). Perceptually relevant speech tracking in auditory and motor cortex reflects distinct linguistic features. PLoS Bio 16(3).
