The present study explored effects of background noise on the cerebral functional asymmetry of speech perception. The magnetic equivalent (MMNm) of mismatch negativity (MMN) elicited by consonant-vowel syllable change presented in silence and during background white noise was measured with a whole-head magnetometer. It was found that in silence MMNm to speech stimuli, registered from the auditory cortex, was stronger in the left than in the right hemisphere. However, when speech signals were… CONTINUE READING
