The present magnetoencephalography (MEG) study tested the hypothesis of a phase synchronization (functional coupling) of cortical alpha rhythms (about 6-12 Hz) within a "speech" cortical neural network comprising bilateral primary auditory cortex and Wernicke's areas, during dichotic listening (DL) of consonant-vowel (CV) syllables. Dichotic stimulation was done with the CV-syllable pairs /da/-/ba/ (true DL, yielded by stimuli having high spectral overlap) and /da/-/ka/ (sham DL, obtained with… CONTINUE READING
