My research project mainly aims at testing whether and to what extent, EEG signals can mirror spectro-acoustical features of different Italian speech sounds, i.e. vowels and consonants, by measuring N1/P2 event related potential (ERPs) components. Intriguingly, we intend to investigate whether the functional modulation of these earlier neural patterns can be detected in speech execution tasks: acoustic production of sounds, silent articulation of sounds, i.e. without acoustic emission, and articulation imagery task, i.e. without producing any sound and oro-facial muscle movements. The possibility to trace neural patterns correlated to the activity elicited during both silent articulation and articulation imagery processes, can be useful to elaborate a framework for decoding, classifying and synthesizing the EEG signals for future Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) applications.
