Hickok’s proposal on speech perception

The primary substrate for speech perception is the posterior temporal plane (pSTP)

pSTP – Heschl’s gyrus plus planum temporale

Conduction aphasia can result from damage to exactly this area in left hemisphere

Apparent paradox:

Comprehension is preserved in conduction aphasia

Explanation:

Speech perception is subserved by pSTP in both hemispheres

(2000: 90)
