En route to disentangle the impact and neurobiological substrates of early vocalizations: Learning from Rett syndrome
MetadataShow full item record
Research on acoustic communication and its underlying neurobiological substrates has led to new insights about the functioning of central pattern generators (CPGs). CPG-related atypicalities may point to brainstem irregularities rather than cortical malfunctions for early vocalizations/babbling. The vocal pattern generator, together with other CPGs, seems to have great potential in disentangling neurodevelopmental disorders and potentially predict neurological development.
