This study focuses on the ability of the adult sound system to reorganize as a result of experience. Participants were exposed to existing and novel syllables in either a perception task (phoneme monitoring) or a production task (reading aloud) over the course of two days. On the third day they named disyllabic pseudowords while their electroencephalogram was recorded. The first syllable of these pseudowords had either been trained in the perception task, trained in the production task or had not been trained. Results show that limited exposure to novel syllables is sufficient to modify the processes or representations engaged in their subsequent production. This study was made possible by a grant from the Swiss National Foundation to A. Bürki (grant n° 100014_159374)
