However, the ban on its use in medical experiments appears to be lifting, Dyck noted. A few groups of researchers in the U.S., ...

Sensory feedback during speech: The brain attunes to more than just sound

Using robotics to manipulate the brain's perception of jaw movement while words are spoken, researchers have deepened our understanding of the importance of non-auditory sensory cues in the brain's control of speech. The findings are reported by Sazzad Nasir and David Ostry of McGill University and ap...
