    • A mutual information analysis of neural coding of speech by low-frequency MEG phase information. 

      Cogan, Gregory; Poeppel, D (J Neurophysiol, 2011-08)
      Recent work has implicated low-frequency (<20 Hz) neuronal phase information as important for both auditory (<10 Hz) and speech [theta (∼4-8 Hz)] perception. Activity on the timescale of theta corresponds linguistically ...
    • Convergent transcriptional specializations in the brains of humans and song-learning birds. 

      Bakken, T; Bernard, A; Bongaarts, A; Ganapathy, G; Gilbert, M Thomas P; Hara, E; Hartemink, Alexander J; ... (25 authors) (Science, 2014-12-12)
      Song-learning birds and humans share independently evolved similarities in brain pathways for vocal learning that are essential for song and speech and are not found in most other species. Comparisons of brain transcriptomes ...
    • Dopamine regulation of human speech and bird song: a critical review. 

      Horwitz, B; Jarvis, Erich David; Simonyan, K (Brain Lang, 2012-09)
      To understand the neural basis of human speech control, extensive research has been done using a variety of methodologies in a range of experimental models. Nevertheless, several critical questions about learned vocal motor ...
    • Major and minor music compared to excited and subdued speech. 

      Bowling, DL; Gill, K; Choi, JD; Prinz, J; Purves, D (J Acoust Soc Am, 2010-01)
      The affective impact of music arises from a variety of factors, including intensity, tempo, rhythm, and tonal relationships. The emotional coloring evoked by intensity, tempo, and rhythm appears to arise from association ...
    • Other Than a Citizen: Vernacular Poetics in Postwar America 

      Moore, Jonathan Peter (2016)
      Few symbols of 1950s-1960s America remain as central to our contemporary conception of Cold War culture as the iconic ranch-style suburban home. While the house took center stage in the Nixon/Khrushchev kitchen debates as ...
    • Sensory-motor transformations for speech occur bilaterally. 

      Cogan, Gregory; Thesen, T; Carlson, C; Doyle, W; Devinsky, O; Pesaran, B (Nature, 2014-03-06)
      Historically, the study of speech processing has emphasized a strong link between auditory perceptual input and motor production output. A kind of 'parity' is essential, as both perception- and production-based representations ...
    • The Biological Basis of Emotion in Musical Tonality 

      Bowling, Daniel Liu (2012)
      In most aspects of music--e.g., tempo, intensity, and rhythm--the emotional coloring of a melody is due at least in part to physical imitation of the characteristics of emotional expression in human behavior. Thus excited, ...
