Cortical oscillations and speech processing: emerging computational principles and operations

  title={Cortical oscillations and speech processing: emerging computational principles and operations},
  author={Anne-Lise Giraud and David Poeppel},
  journal={Nature Neuroscience},
Neuronal oscillations are ubiquitous in the brain and may contribute to cognition in several ways: for example, by segregating information and organizing spike timing. Recent data show that delta, theta and gamma oscillations are specifically engaged by the multi-timescale, quasi-rhythmic properties of speech and can track its dynamics. We argue that they are foundational in speech and language processing, 'packaging' incoming information into units of the appropriate temporal granularity. Such… CONTINUE READING
