[ONOS Seminar Series] Professor. Michael A. Long: Neural mechanisms of interactive communication
Vocal communication is central to our everyday lives, facilitating social exchange. Despite significant recent discoveries, the neural mechanisms underlying coordinated vocal exchanges remain poorly understood. We examine the brain processes involved in interactive vocal behaviors, focusing on forebrain circuitry in animal models, and we relate these to emerging human studies that employ a range of methods to manipulate and monitor cortical areas relevant for speech.
