Speech perception in the newborn baby: An experimental and neuropsychological approach / La perception de la parole chez le nouveau-ne. Une approche experimentale et neuropsychologique

Describes recent research on the capacities of neonates for processing speech. Data on the ability of newborns to perceive speech and to discriminate different languages is presented, and results of research on the cerebral correlates of these early perceptual capacities is reviewed.
