Producing words is probably one of the most complex human cognitive skills. We use language to communicate our thoughts, express feelings and ask questions. To do that, we need to press air from our lungs through our larynx and move our jaws, tongue and lips. How do we transform something as abstract as a thought into something as concrete as a motor movement? Professor Niels Schiller will briefly demonstrate the time course of speech planning. And how amazingly fast we are in producing speech.
