Several behavioral and brain imaging studies have demonstrated a significant interaction between speech perception and speech production. In this study, auditory cortical responses to speech were examined during self-production and feedback alteration. Magnetic field recordings were obtained from both hemispheres in subjects who spoke while hearing controlled acoustic versions of their speech feedback via earphones. These responses were compared to recordings made while subjects listened to a… Expand
Modulation of Auditory Responses to Speech vs. Nonspeech Stimuli during Speech Movement Planning
TLDR
Modulation of the auditory system has a general effect on early processing stages but a speech-specific effect on later processing stages, consistent with the hypothesis that pre-speech auditory modulation may play a role in priming the auditorySystem for its role in monitoring auditory feedback during speech production. Expand
Self-monitoring in the cerebral cortex: Neural responses to small pitch shifts in auditory feedback during speech production
TLDR
It is suggested that &thgr; and &bgr; power increases support auditory‐motor interaction, motor error detection and/or sensory prediction processing, and increased lower beta power over motor areas may reflect motor error processing or auditory prediction. Expand
Speech-induced suppression of evoked auditory fields in children who stutter
TLDR
Children who stutter had a delayed auditory M50 peak latency to vowel sounds compared to children who do not stutter indicating a possible deficiency in their ability to efficiently integrate auditory speech information for the purpose of establishing neural representations of speech sounds. Expand
Time-dependent Neural Processing of Auditory Feedback during Voice Pitch Error Detection
TLDR
Findings indicated that the neural mechanisms of auditory feedback processing are sensitive to timing between the vocal motor commands and the incoming auditory feedback. Expand
Perceptual manifestations of auditory modulation during speech planning
TLDR
Results suggest that previously reported electrophysiological modulations of the auditory system during speech planning may have perceptual manifestations, such as increases in perceptual thresholds and uncertainty of perceptual thresholds in an intensity discrimination task. Expand
Single-Trial Speech Suppression of Auditory Cortex Activity in Humans
TLDR
Recording electrocorticographic activity from neurosurgical subjects performing auditory repetition tasks revealed that the degree of suppression varied across different regions of auditory cortex, revealing a variety of suppressed and nonsuppressed responses during vocalization. Expand
Auditory evoked fields to vocalization during passive listening and active generation in adults who stutter
TLDR
The results suggest that there are timing, rather than amplitude, differences in auditory processing during speech in adults who stutter and are discussed in relation to hypotheses of auditory-motor integration breakdown in stuttering. Expand
A bilateral cortical network responds to pitch perturbations in speech feedback
TLDR
The network dynamics reveal the cortical processing involved in both detecting the speech error and updating the motor plan to create the new pitch output in both monitoring auditory feedback and initiating rapid compensation to feedback errors. Expand
Fine-tuning of auditory cortex during speech production.
TLDR
The subjects' own unaltered voice feedback elicited a dampened auditory N100 response relative to the N100 elicited by altered or alien auditory feedback, consistent with the operation of a precise forward model modulating the auditory cortical response to self-generated speech and allowing immediate distinction of self and externally generated auditory stimuli. Expand
Distinct neural systems recruited when speech production is modulated by different masking sounds.
TLDR
In the superior temporal gyrus, activation was most strongly associated with increases in informational, rather than energetic, masking, which suggests that the neural activations associated with speaking in noise are more complex than a simple feedback response. Expand

Speech comprehension is correlated with temporal response patterns recorded from auditory cortex
TLDR
The results suggest that the match between the speech rate and the a priori modulation capacities of the auditory cortex is a prerequisite for comprehension, however, this is not sufficient: stimulus-cortex PL should be achieved during actual sentence presentation. Expand
Differential effects of overt, covert and replayed speech on vowel-evoked responses of the human auditory cortex
TLDR
Voiceless 'inner' speaking is sufficient to modify utterance-specific processing in the human auditory cortex and auditory interference as the main cause for these modifications. Expand
Speaking modifies voice‐evoked activity in the human auditory cortex
TLDR
It is shown here that self‐uttered syllables transiently activate the speaker's auditory cortex around 100 ms after voice onset, which primes the human auditory cortex at a millisecond time scale, dampening and delaying reactions to self‐produced “expected” sounds, more prominently in the speech‐dominant hemisphere. Expand
Modification of neuromagnetic responses of the human auditory cortex by masking sounds
TLDR
The results suggest that the masking effects of continuous noise, seen at the auditory cortex, derive mainly from the periphery whereas the effects of sounds with intensity and frequency modulations take place at more central auditory pathways. Expand
Task-induced asymmetry of the auditory evoked M100 neuromagnetic field elicited by speech sounds.
TLDR
The results suggest that attentional modulation affects the two supratemporal cortices in a differential manner, and task-conditioned attention to speech sounds is reflected in lateralized suPRatemporal cortical responses possibly concordant with hemispheric language dominance. Expand
Neuromagnetic study of the auditory responses in right and left hemispheres of the human brain evoked by pure tones and speech sounds
TLDR
A difference was found in the dipole locations in the horizontal plane for the speech stimuli of a vowel /a/ and a consonant-vowel /ka/. Expand
Inhibition of auditory cortical neurons during phonation
TLDR
It is concluded that brain structures which are activated during phonation exert an inhibitory influence on parts of the auditory cortex, providing evidence of a neuronal feed-forward circuit mechanism within the process of audiovocal communication. Expand

Neuronal activity in the human lateral temporal lobe
TLDR
Neuronal activity in the lateral temporal lobe of man to overt speech during open brain surgery for epilepsy were recorded, and neurons were mostly differently affected by listening to words and language as compared to overt speaking. Expand
Subject's own speech reduces reactivity of the human auditory cortex
TLDR
Modulation of the activity of the auditory cortex during own speech on a millisecond time scale was recorded while subjects were reading silently and aloud and was more prominent in responses to ipsilateral than contralateral tones. Expand
