A new study has revealed that the region of the brain that is sensitive to the timing of speech plays a vital role in human language.
Brain needs to interpret different time signatures in order to understand what others are saying. Therefore, timing plays an important part for human speech. Speech is generally made of different time measurements.
Phonemes are the shortest unit of speech, which lasts between 30 to 60 milliseconds. The other measurement is syllable, which lasts for between 200 and 300 milliseconds and whole words are even longer.
In order to deal with this information, information in chunks is sampled by the auditory system. The information is equivalent to average consonant or syllable.
