Cortical organisation of speech
Producing speech requires the synchronised operation of several cortical centres.
speech, speech motor cortex, speech processing cortex, auditory cortex, Broca, Wernicke, perception, visual cortex, brain, cerebral cortex, motor cortex, aphasia, human, biology
Neurons are cells specialised for transmitting electric signals.
The main parts of the human brain are the brain stem, the cerebellum, the diencephalon, and the cerebrum, which is divided into lobes.
Neurons transmit electrical signals via chemical and electrical synapses.
The main parts of the human brain are the brain stem, the cerebellum, the diencephalon, and the cerebrum.
The ear converts the vibrations of air into electric signals which are then processed by the brain.
This animation demonstrates the internal structure of the brain.
When producing sound, the vocal cords are vibrated by the air flowing out of the lung.
The central nervous system consists of the brain and the spinal cord, the peripheral nervous system consists of nerves and ganglia.
The spinal cord is the part of the central nervous system running inside the spinal column from which spinal nerves branch out.
