Left motor delta oscillations reflect asynchrony detection in multisensory speech perception (New paper by former BANDLAB members E. Biau & B. Schultz)

Read how Biau and colleagues manipulated audio-visual asynchrony detection and their results that read like this:

‘Results confirm (i) that participants accurately detected audio-visual asynchrony, and (ii) increased delta power in the left motor cortex in response to audio-visual asynchrony. The difference of delta power between asynchronous and synchronous conditions predicted behavioural performance, and (iii) decreased delta-beta coupling in the left motor cortex when listeners could not accurately map visual and auditory prosodies. Finally, both behavioural and neurophysiological evidence was altered when a speaker’s face was degraded by a visual mask.’

Those results suggest that asynchrony detection of audio-visual stimuli in speech is supported by left motor delta oscillations!
