The results suggest that AV speech elicits in the listener a motor plan for the production of the phoneme that the speaker might have been attempting to produce, and that feedback in the form of efference copy from the motor system ultimately influences the phonetic interpretation.

A Gene Map of the Human Genome
The gene map unifies the existing genetic and physical maps with the nucleotide and protein sequence databases in a fashion that should speed the discovery of genes underlying inherited human disease.
Recursive syntactic pattern learning by songbirds
It is shown that European starlings (Sturnus vulgaris) accurately recognize acoustic patterns defined by a recursive, self-embedding, context-free grammar, and this finding opens a new range of complex syntactic processing mechanisms to physiological investigation.
Formation of lateral root meristems is a two-stage process.
It is hypothesized that meristem formation is a two-step process involving an initial period during which a population of rapidly dividing, approximately isodiametric cells that constitutes the primordium is formed, and a subsequent stage during which meristen organization takes place within thePrimordium.

It is suggested that, by reducing cognitive load, gesturing may also play a role in shaping that state, and gesturing appeared to save the speakers' cognitive resources on the explanation task, permitting the speakers to allocate more resources to the memory task.
A physical map of 30,000 human genes.
A map of 30,181 human gene-based markers was assembled and integrated with the current genetic map by radiation hybrid mapping, which contains nearly twice as many genes as the previous release and is twofold to threefold more accurate than the previous version.
What Are You Feeling? Using Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging to Assess the Modulation of Sensory and Affective Responses during Empathy for Pain
The findings elucidate how top-down control mechanisms and automatic bottom-up processes interact to generate and modulate other-oriented responses, and shed light on how emotional and bodily awareness enable us to evaluate the sensory and affective states of others.
Listening to talking faces: motor cortical activation during speech perception
Acoustic differences, listener expectations, and the perceptual accommodation of talker variability.
The authors present evidence that perceptual sensitivity to talker variability involves an active cognitive mechanism, and provide further evidence for active, controlled processing in real-time speech perception and are consistent with a model of talker normalization that involves contextual tuning.
