The neuronal representation of social communication signals – voices and faces in the primate brain


Room 305 | 26 Bedford Way (link Map)
London | WC1H 0DS | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

Speaker: Dr. Catherine Perrodin

I will first present data on the auditory encoding of voices by neurons in a voice-sensitive area. Second, I will discuss how visual face information interacts with the neuronal processing of voices during audio-visual social communication. Finally, I will consider how these new insights into the neuronal mechanisms of voice processing inform on the substrates of voice-related activity patterns in humans. By building on the links between how the brains of humans and monkeys process social communication signals, such cross-species comparisons are advancing our understanding of the neurobiology of voice perception.
