Prelinguistic evolution and motherese: A hypothesis on the neural substrates

  • Francisco Aboitiz (a1) and Carolina G Schröter (a2)

Abstract

In early hominins, there possibly was high selective pressure for the development of reciprocal mother and child vocalizations such as proposed by Falk. In this context, temporoparietal-prefrontal networks that participate in tasks such as working memory and imitation may have been strongly selected for. These networks may have become the precursors of the future language areas of the human brain.
