Talk title: Neural mechanisms of interactive communication

Abstract: Vocal communication is central to our everyday lives, facilitating social exchange. Despite significant recent discoveries, the neural mechanisms underlying coordinated vocal exchanges remain poorly understood. We examine the brain processes involved in interactive vocal behaviors, focusing on forebrain circuitry in the human brain as well as a new rodent model for vocal communication. We identify brain activity in key regions in both species and demonstrate that these dynamics are critical for interactive vocalizations.
