Distinct neural mechanisms support inner speaking and inner hearing

Humans have the ability to mentally examine speech. This covert form of speech production is often accompanied by sensory (e.g., auditory) percepts. However, the cognitive and neural mechanisms that generate these percepts are still debated. …

Uncovering the origins of inner speech sensory content

Inner speech is accompanied by a subjective multisensory experience. However, the origins (causes) of this subjective experience are debated. In this study, we used transcranial magnetic stimulation to disentangle the predictions of competing theoretical frameworks.
