    Poor coherence in older people's speech is explained by impaired semantic and executive processes

    Paul Hoffman et al.
    Remaining focused on the topic at hand when speaking depends on effective selection of task-relevant semantic knowledge, and declines in this ability account for increases in off-topic speech in older people.

    Conceptual metaphorical mapping in chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes)

    Christoph D Dahl, Ikuma Adachi
    The use of metaphorical concepts is not unique to humans.

    miR-9 regulates basal ganglia-dependent developmental vocal learning and adult vocal performance in songbirds

    Zhimin Shi et al.
    Gene manipulation combined with behavior analysis reveals a role of miR-9 in modulating basal-ganglia-dependent developmental vocal learning and adult vocal performance via regulating the FOXP1/FOXP2 gene network and dopamine signaling in songbirds.

    Neuronal populations in the occipital cortex of the blind synchronize to the temporal dynamics of speech

    Markus Johannes Van Ackeren et al.
    Blind people re-purpose the brain's visual areas for tracking speech rhythm.
    1. Neuroscience

    Specific lexico-semantic predictions are associated with unique spatial and temporal patterns of neural activity

    Lin Wang et al.
    The prediction of specific words is associated with distinct spatial and temporal patterns of neural activity within the left inferior and medial temporal regions before the predicted word is presented.

    Lip movements entrain the observers’ low-frequency brain oscillations to facilitate speech intelligibility

    Hyojin Park et al.
    Rhythms of lip movements entrain low-frequency brain oscillations and facilitate audiovisual speech processing.
    1. Neuroscience

    Intrinsically regulated learning is modulated by synaptic dopamine signaling

    Pablo Ripollés et al.
    Dopamine modulates behavioral measures of learning and pleasantness in a learning task guided by intrinsic reward, inducing long-term memory benefits specially in those participants with a high sensitivity to reward.
