Title: Speech and voice identity recognition in the human brain

Authors: Katharina von Kriegstein


Understanding what is said and recognising the identity of the talker are two important tasks that the brain is faced with in human communication. For a long time neuroscientific models for speech and voice processing have focused mostly on auditory language and voice-sensitive cerebral cortex regions to explain speech and voice recognition. However, our re-se arch has shown that the brain uses even more complex processing strategies for recognising auditory communication signals, such as the recruitment of dedicated visual face areas for auditory processing. In my talk I will give an overview of this work and integrate the findings into a novel view of how the human brain recognises auditory communication signals.
