N2 - Functional neuroimaging revolutionized the study of human language in the late 20th Century, allowing researchers to investigate its underlying cognitive processes in the intact brain.

We highlight the use of carefully controlled acoustic stimuli to reveal the underlying hierarchical organization of speech processing systems and cortical (a)symmetries, and discuss the contributions of novel design and analysis techniques to the contextualization of perisylvian regions within wider speech processing networks.
