Does vocal mimcry involve muscle memory?
« on: 01/09/2016 10:53:01 »
Peter Jacobs asked the Naked Scientists:
   With regard to vocal mimics and brain scans, I wonder whether the equivalent of muscle memory is involved here. I would like to see the professionals scanned doing well practiced imitations as opposed to learning a new voice. When learning a new language, there comes a point where you can speak without having to consciously translate each word.
What do you think?
