New paper: Cerebellar circuitry and auditory verbal hallucinations: An integrative synthesis and perspective

New paper from our lab in collaboation with Ana P. Pinheiro, Michael Schwartze and Sonja A. Kotz!

Why do some people hear voices? In the review, the authors propose that auditory verbal hallucinations (AVHs) are associated to changes in the cerebellar cicuitry in the forward model. In short, the reviewed evidence suggests that erratic predictions of sound and voice production are linked to impaired cerebellar function.

New paper: Distinct cortical rhythms in speech and language processing and some more

New paper from our lab by Katerina Kandylaki and Sonja Kotz!
Screenshot_2020-06-19 Distinct cortical rhythms in speech and language processing and some more a commentary on Meyer, Sun,[...]
In our commentary to Meyer et al. (2019) we draw attention to three main points to consider in any proposal/theory of neural oscillations for language:
1. Language in context
2. Neurobiological processing of continuous signals
3. Argument structure processing
Opening up the dialogue, we’d be happy to connect and discuss, so please feel free to contact us!

New paper: ERP mismatch response to phonological and temporal regularities in speech

New_Paper_BAND-LAB(3)

We are excited to share our new publication “ERP mismatch response to phonological and temporal regularities in speech”, fresh off the press at Scientific Reports! In collaboration with the M-BIC Brain and Language Lab, our PhD candidate Alex Emmendorfer uses a passive oddball paradigm to investigate how our brain makes use of regularities in the phonological and temporal structure of speech.

New paper: From story comprehension to the neurobiology of language

We are proud to present our new publication, the editorial of the special issue on story comprehension “From story comprehension to the neuorobiology of language” in the Language, Cognition, and Neuroscience journal of Taylor Francis.

Three BAND-lab members were involved in this special issue. Sonja Kotz and Laura Verga wrote about “Putting language back into ecological communication contexts”. Katerina Kandylaki edited the special issue, together with Ina Bornkessel-Schlesewsky of the University of South Australia.
