How the brain distinguishes between voice and sound

Press release on our recent publication in Nature Human Behavior is out (voir aussi version Francaise).

"The scientists discovered that the auditory cortex amplifies  different aspects of the sounds, depending on what task is being  performed. Voice-specific information is prioritised for voice  differentiation, while phoneme-specific information is important for the  differentiation of speech sounds. The results, which are published in  the journal Nature Human Behaviour, shed light on the cerebral mechanisms involved in speech processing."
