Neural correlates of the perception of contrastive prosodic focus in French: A functional magnetic resonance imaging study
Human Brain Mapping, 04/06/2012PerroneBertolotti M et al. –
The results argue for a dual stream model of focus perception compatible with the asymmetric sampling in time hypothesis. They suggest that the detection of prosodic focus involves an interplay between the right and left hemispheres, in which the computation of slowly changing prosodic cues in the right hemisphere dynamically feeds an internal model concurrently used by the left hemisphere, which carries out computations over shorter temporal windows.
