A new study suggests that brain, stroke, head injuries, speech and communication disorders could be treated, as brain covers both the sides of the brain. This study debunk the belief that only one side o the brain is used for this task.
The findings improve understanding of the process of speech generation in the brain which could lead to new techniques to treat speech related disorders.
Previous researches on speech relied on studies that were measuring brain activities indirectly. This new study however examined the relation between speech and brain activity directly. Participants of this study had a direct and specialized electrodes implanted inside and on the surface of the brain.
Researchers focused on parts of the brain during speech. The participants were asked to repeat non-words like ‘kig’ and ‘pob’. Using non-words trigger brain activities enabled by the researchers to segregate speech from language.
The results indicated activity in both the sides of the brain for speech. With this great insight between the connection between brain and speech, we can work for the development of new and advanced ways to support those trying to regain the ability to speak after a stroke or head injury.

Here is one of the latest reviews from the shelves of Bentham open eBooks, “Methods to Determine Enzymatic Activity”- is a textbook about industrial enzymes. The book features definitions, classifications and applications of selected enzymes important in industry and in biotechnological processes. Analytical methods for these enzymes are also included in the text. The main objective of this textbook is to provide readers information focused on the current analysis methods of enzymatic activity at qualitative and quantitative levels. Each chapter is about one specific enzyme and contains information about its substrate and some biochemical properties. The methodologies are presented as an experimental protocol allowing interested readers to reproduce the experimental methods detailed within the textbook. These protocols contain the principle of the technique, materials, methods, and all steps necessary for the determination of enzyme activity and interpretation of results. Each methodology is illustrated with photos and schemes for a better and clear understanding. This book, therefore, uniquely brings modern analysis techniques of industrial enzymes in a single easy to understand volume. This textbook is suitable for undergraduate enzymology courses and advanced industrial biotechnology and microbiology courses.
