  • Silent speech recognition has been demonstrated by sticking implants into the brain, placing sensors on the tongue, and other means of monitoring movements and physiological signals. (theregister.co.uk)
  • Since signed and spoken languages are perceptually and articulatorily distinct, their neural bases must diverge in many ways: the programming of a manual gesture is clearly different from movements of the mouth, and the perception of sign language engages the visual cortex while speech is processed in the auditory cortex. (nature.com)
  • Here we use realistic computer models of the human speech organs to test whether inter-individual and inter-group variation in the shape of the hard palate (the bony roof of the mouth) affects acoustics of speech sounds. (nature.com)
  • Based on 107 midsagittal MRI scans of the hard palate of human participants, we modelled with high accuracy the articulation of a set of five cross-linguistically representative vowels by agents learning to produce speech sounds. (nature.com)
  • We found that different hard palate shapes result in subtle differences in the acoustics and articulatory strategies of the produced vowels, and that these individual-level speech idiosyncrasies are amplified by the repeated transmission of language across generations. (nature.com)

  • The nature of the tests administered depends on the specific deficits of the individual patient. (uic.edu)
  • Children use oral airflow to produce the /h/ sound without allowing the vocal folds to come together in a glottal stop (a common compensatory error for children with cleft palate speech). (linguisystems.com)
  • In these cases, speech alteration occurs due to compromised velopharyngeal function ( 3 , 4 ) , such as obligatory disturbances and compensatory articulations, as well as the dento-occlusal balance condition ( 5 - 8 ) , which aids functional adaptation of the tongue and lips. (scielo.br)
  • The two groups were subjected to full history taking, clinical examination, routine laboratory investigations (urine analysis, CBC, liver, kidney function tests Na, k, PT, PTT & INR) Abdominal ultrasound was done to assess fetal life and gestational age and to exclude gestational trophoblastic disease and multiple gestation pregnancy.H.Pylori infection was assessed by using One step H.pylori Stool Antigen Test. (bioportfolio.com)
  • Severity ranges, confidence intervals, percentile ranks, and test-age equivalent scores further aid clinical interpretation. (linguisystems.com)
  • Since test-retest reliability is difficult if not impossible to attain with patients suffering from aphasic symptoms, the current reliability coefficients demonstrate very good internal consistency in terms of what the items within the subtests are measuring. (wikipedia.org)

  • However, whether the same neurobiology underlies the online construction of complex linguistic structures in sign and speech remains unknown. (nature.com)
  • Thus the neurobiological similarity of sign and speech goes beyond gross measures such as lateralization: the same fronto-temporal network achieves the planning of structured linguistic expressions. (nature.com)
  • Although listeners perceive speech as a stream of discrete units[citation needed] (phonemes, syllables, and words), this linearity is difficult to see in the physical speech signal (see Figure 2 for an example). (wikipedia.org)
  • 2. The speech recognition method according to claim 1, further comprising the steps of calculating syllables of sound of the speech according to variation of said sound stimulus value, and determining a reference sample having said closest match with said speech characteristic parameter frame series with syllables being closest to said syllables of sound of the speech.

  • At some point between four and 10 months, the infant begins producing more speech-like syllables, with a full resonant vowel and an appropriate "closure" of the stream of sound, approaching a true consonant. (encyclopedia.com)
  • These facts suggest that the infant is "exercising" her speech organs, but is not being guided very much, if at all, by what she has heard. (encyclopedia.com)
  • For example, one of the most studied cues in speech is voice onset time or VOT. (wikipedia.org)
