Phase 2 of CATALISE: a multinational and multidisciplinary Delphi consensus study of problems with language development: Terminology
Background Lack of agreement about criteria and terminology for children's language problems affects access to services as well as hindering research and practice. We report the second phase of aExpand

Neurobiological Basis of Language Learning Difficulties
In this paper we highlight why there is a need to examine subcortical learning systems in children with language impairment and dyslexia, rather than focusing solely on cortical areas relevant forExpand

Generality and specificity in the effects of musical expertise on perception and cognition
Performing musicians invest thousands of hours becoming experts in a range of perceptual, attentional, and cognitive skills. The duration and intensity of musicians' training - far greater than thatExpand

Roles of Supplementary Motor Areas in Auditory Processing and Auditory Imagery
Although the supplementary and pre-supplementary motor areas have been intensely investigated in relation to their motor functions, they are also consistently reported in studies of auditoryExpand

Functional and Quantitative MRI Mapping of Somatomotor Representations of Human Supralaryngeal Vocal Tract
Abstract Speech articulation requires precise control of and coordination between the effectors of the vocal tract (e.g., lips, tongue, soft palate, and larynx). However, it is unclear how the cortexExpand

Convergent and Divergent fMRI Responses in Children and Adults to Increasing Language Production Demands
In adults, patterns of neural activation associated with perhaps the most basic language skill—overt object naming—are extensively modulated by the psycholinguistic and visual complexity of theExpand

Distinct processing of ambiguous speech in people with non‐clinical auditory verbal hallucinations
&NA; Auditory verbal hallucinations (hearing voices) are typically associated with psychosis, but a minority of the general population also experience them frequently and without distress. SuchExpand

Fractionating nonword repetition: The contributions of short-term memory and oromotor praxis are different
The ability to reproduce novel words is a sensitive marker of language impairment across a variety of developmental disorders. Nonword repetition tasks are thought to reflect phonological short-termExpand

Oromotor skill predicts non-word repetition ability Articulating novel words : children ’ s oromotor skills predict non-word repetition abilities
Purpose: Pronouncing a novel word for the first time requires the transformation of a newly encoded speech signal into a series of coordinated, exquisitely timed oromotor movements. IndividualExpand

What underlies the emergence of stimulus- and domain-specific neural responses? Commentary on Hernandez, Claussenius-Kalman, Ronderos, Castilla-Earls, Sun, Weiss, & Young (2018)
Abstract Hernandez et al (2018) provide a welcome historical perspective and synthesis of emergentist theories over the last decades, particularly in their focus on theoretical differences. Here weExpand
