Written by leading academic researchers, "The Neurobiology of Vocal Learning" presents comparative approaches to vocal learning. This text examines the broad range of non-human species that exhibit this trait, including three groups of birds and four groups of mammals, in order to gain understanding of neural and behavioral mechanisms of human language and of cognitive behaviors in general. With a balanced focus on songbird and human neural systems, this book places an emphasis on the behavioral approaches used to test for vocal learning and the methods used to study speech and language systems at the molecular, cellular, neurophysiological, and anatomical levels.
