Neural entrainment to speech rhythms in normal and dyslexic readers

Abstract: The general aim of this talk is twofold: a fundamental aim is to understand the role of auditory cortical oscillations at different frequency bands in the processing of sounds and in particular in the processing of speech. A more clinical aim is to understand in what respect auditory cortical oscillations deviate in individuals with developmental dyslexia, and how these deviations impact speech processing and phonological skills relevant to reading acquisition. This talk therefore has the potential to illuminate the neurophysiology of auditory and speech perception, and the neural and cognitive basis of developmental dyslexia.
