Title: Language Talent and Brain Activity
Edited By: SusanneMariaReiterer
URL: http://degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110205183-1
Series Title: Trends in Applied Linguistics 1
Description:

This book describes and assesses pronunciation talent in its various
dimensions, such as production and perception or the segmental and
suprasegmental levels of speech. Special focus is put on the psychological
and neural correlates of phonetic performance. Behavioral influences such
as empathy or motivation are investigated. The resulting classification of
proficiency and talent level is used to select subjects for neuroimaging
studies in which differences in brain activity between talented and
untalented individuals are observed.
