Investigation of phonological discrimination evolution in 4 and 8 months old babies by heart rate recordings

Units : Research Unit in Cognitive Neurosciences | ULB585

Description :

Before six months, chidren are able to discriminate all phonemes of all languages. However, from six months, children select only
the sounds that are pertinent for their native language. In order to objectively examine this change, we study, thanks to heart
rate recordings, phonemic discrimination abilities of 4 and 8 months-old babies presented with syllables from a VOT (Voice Onset
Time) continuum.
