Adaptive auditory cortical coding of speech
Language development typically leads to optimized neural mechanisms, enabling efficient speech analysis in adults with high adaptability to behavioral goals. In this talk, I will discuss EEG and fMRI studies investigating the role of the human auditory cortex in forming these adaptive speech sound representations. In particular, our findings show spatio-temporal neural coding mechanisms underlying task- and reading-induced plasticity in speech perception as well as their refinement during typical and atypical reading development.
