Emotions in Voices: An fNIRS Study.

Link – Human Discrimination and Categorization of Emotions in Voices: A Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) Study. Abstract Functional Near-Infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) is a neuroimaging tool that has been recently used in a variety of cognitive paradigms. Yet, it remains unclear whether fNIRS is suitable to study complex cognitive processes such as categorization or discrimination. Previously, […]

tDCS modulation of vocal pitch control.

Link – Modulation of vocal pitch control through high-definition transcranial direct current stimulation of the left ventral motor cortex. Abstract Neural interactions between sensorimotor integration mechanisms play critical roles in voice motor control. We investigated how high-definition transcranial direct current stimulation (HD-tDCS) of the left ventral motor cortex modulates neural mechanisms of sensorimotor integration during […]

Decoding of the relation between human voice and brain activity

Link – Complexity-based decoding of the relation between human voice and brain activity. Abstract BACKGROUND: The human voice is the main feature of human communication. It is known that the brain controls the human voice. Therefore, there should be a relation between the characteristics of voice and brain activity. OBJECTIVE: In this research, electroencephalography (EEG) […]
