Developmental Changes in Cerebral Responses to Native and Non-native Vowels: a Nirs Study

Abstract

While newborn infants discriminate speech sounds from languages that they have never heard, 6month-olds demonstrate the beginnings of vowel classification specific to their native-language. The neuronal correlates involved in such a dramatic perceptual reorganization process, however, are not well understood. Using near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS), this… (More)
