Dr. Randall Benson responds and reacts to the recent military action in Iraq resulting in several identified cases of TBI.
Military Veterans Hockey Team Takes the Ice in Novi Competitive sports can help recovery from Traumatic Brain Injuries NOVI, MI, Sept. XX — Some tough new competition is taking the ice in the Novi Men’s Hockey League for the 2017-‘18 season. The Lightning, a new team comprised solely of military veterans and their family members,
The neural substrates underlying speech perception are still not well understood. Previously, we found dissociation of speech and nonspeech processing at the earliest cortical level (AI), using speech and nonspeech complexity dimensions. Acoustic differences between speech and nonspeech stimuli in imaging studies, however, confound the search for linguistic– phonetic regions. Presently, we used sinewave speech (SWsp) and nonspeech (SWnon), which replace
Candidate brain regions constituting a neural network for preattentive phonetic perception were identified with fMRI and multivariate multiple regression of imaging data. Stimuli contrasted along speech/nonspeech, acoustic, or phonetic complexity (three levels each) and natural/synthetic dimensions. Seven distributed brain regions’ activity correlated with speech and speech complexity dimensions, including five left-sided foci [posterior superior temporal gyrus (STG), angular gyrus, ventral
