NYU ECoGnition Podcast: Speech processing requires bilateral thinking

January 15th, 2014

In this edition of the NYU ECoGnition Podcast, Rachel Jurd interviews Bijan Pesaran and Greg Cogan from the NYU Center for Neural Science.  Along, with collaborators from the NYU Comprehensive Epilepsy Center, they have published a new paper in Nature.  The results of this study establish a role for a bilateral sensory motor-system for speech, rather than a lateralized system.

The Grand Challenge team won a $250,000 grant to support their research project, “Smart Neuroprosthetics: Brain-Machine Interfaces for the 21st Century”.
The team aims to develop a new generation of wireless implantable devices that could be used to manipulate prosthetic limbs, improve auditory prosthetic implants, or improve impaired learning, memory, or social cognition. For more information, click here.
