The auditory processing, what do we know?
The auditory processing is an activity which it is done as an involuntary activity by our brain and it gives us environmental information, although this one is integrated much better when the visual system is supporting this acoustic recognition. In fact, in the evolutive development, the sight has a performance more effective around 6th month from the birth, which is really helpful to localization the place of the sound sources and to associating with people, objects and animals. The auditory capacity is necessary to having a right working cognitive either in the early evolutive development, in aging or after a
Speech processing and Artificial Intelligence
The technology has been moving forward a lot in the last decades, especially with the development of software which it can run a human order through your voice. They are devices built with Artificial Intelligence (AI) which give to the user the possibility to do other tasks with their hands while these applications run their instructions. But, could people with the communication impaired to benefiting from these software? In this post we will be able to see some terminologies which are associated to this discipline and how is regard to the research about speech.
Areas involved in the processing language
The research about language processing is an issue very investigated but it still have a lot of questions without answer. Thanks to basic research on neuroscience. It is possible to know what areas are activated during the linguistic processing. For this, it is used high-technology systems like the functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), in which we can see the different activations on the brain regions.
Cortical Deafness and Auditory Agnosias: Case reports
Cortical deafness and Auditory agnosias are impairments that, even though they were uncovered since long time ago, we don’t know a lot of them. In the literature there are some case reports about these pathologies which sometimes they are not very exactly, especially regards the brain lesion due to their large size. The details about the assessments of the possible alterations on the auditory processing of every patient are not very common find them on the case reports, so the article is focused on the most striking alterations in the patient.
