A cerebral network model of speech prosody comprehension

  title={A cerebral network model of speech prosody comprehension},
  author={Dirk Wildgruber and Thomas Ethofer and Didier Grandjean and Benjamin Kreifelts},
Comprehension of information conveyed by the tone of voice is highly important for successful social interactions (Grandjean et al., 2006). Based on lesion data, a superiority of the right hemisphere for cerebral processing of speech prosody has been assumed. According to an early neuroanatomical model, prosodic information is encoded within distinct right-sided perisylvian regions which are organized in complete analogy to the left-sided language areas (Ross, 1981). While the majority of… CONTINUE READING
