Setting up the speech production network: how oscillations contribute to lateralized information routing.

Gehrig J, Wibral M, Arnold C, Kell CA - Front Psychol (2012)

Bottom Line: This MEG study focuses on the spectro-temporal dynamics that contribute to the setup of this network.While a broadband low frequency effect was found for any task preparation in bilateral prefrontal cortices, preparation for overt speech production was specifically associated with left-lateralized alpha and beta suppression in temporal cortices and beta suppression in motor-related brain regions.Beta phase coupling in the entire speech production network was modulated by anticipation of overt reading.

ABSTRACT
Speech production involves widely distributed brain regions. This MEG study focuses on the spectro-temporal dynamics that contribute to the setup of this network. In 21 participants performing a cue-target reading paradigm, we analyzed local oscillations during preparation for overt and covert reading in the time-frequency domain and localized sources using beamforming. Network dynamics were studied by comparing different dynamic causal models of beta phase coupling in and between hemispheres. While a broadband low frequency effect was found for any task preparation in bilateral prefrontal cortices, preparation for overt speech production was specifically associated with left-lateralized alpha and beta suppression in temporal cortices and beta suppression in motor-related brain regions. Beta phase coupling in the entire speech production network was modulated by anticipation of overt reading. We propose that the processes underlying the setup of the speech production network connect relevant brain regions by means of beta synchronization and prepare the network for left-lateralized information routing by suppression of inhibitory alpha and beta oscillations.

Figure 6: Source localization of broadband low frequency effects during the first second of preparation for overt reading compared to baseline (cluster corrected p < 0.05). Warm colors represent power increases.

Mentions: The broadband power increase from 2 to 15 Hz observed for both conditions at anterior sensors localized to the bilateral prefrontal cortex (not shown). Even when source-localizing the broadband effect outside the alpha peak, a large overlap of prefrontal delta/theta (Table 1) and 11–15 Hz (Table 2) sources was observed (Figure 6).
