Near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy, a non-invasive optical method for monitoring hemodynamics, was applied to record evoked auditory response of the human brain. Our newly developed system detected the amount of oxygenated and deoxygenated hemoglobin in the area of the local brain located beneath the probes. In the study, we used magnetoencephalography (MEG)(More)
Auditory-articulatory linkage in our brain plays an essential neurobiological role in human speech communication. Speech-specific sensorimotor organization is basically a genetically transmitted program, whereas its ontogenetic outcome may strongly reflect the unique form of human vocal organs. In this study, electromyographic data from the four extrinsic(More)
