Speaker-listener neural coupling underlies successful communication ** Language is a like a wire connecting our brains

Abstract Verbal communication is a joint activity; however, speech production and comprehension have primarily been analyzed as independent processes within the boundaries of individual brains. Here, we applied fMRI to record brain activity from both speakers and listeners during natural verbal communication. We used the speaker’s spatiotemporal brain activity to model listeners’ brain activity and … Continue reading Speaker-listener neural coupling underlies successful communication ** Language is a like a wire connecting our brains
