Emotional prosody after right-hemisphere stroke : Acoustic analysis and rating of voice expression (English)
Abstract [sv]

Viktiga aspekter av kommunikationen styrs från höger hjärnhalva, däribland emotionell prosodi. Forskningen inom detta område har dock hittills varit ganska begränsad. En aspekt, som inte undersökts än, är jämförelse av deltagarens egen och lyssnares skattning av röstens uttrycksfullhet. Syftet med studien vara att undersöka förmågan att uttrycka emotionell prosodi efter stroke i höger hemisfär. Deltagare var tre patienter med stroke i höger hemisfär samt tre kontrollpersoner utan neurologisk sjukdom/skada eller problem med tal eller röst. Sammansättningen i grupperna av deltagare med stroke respektive kontrollpersoner var likvärdig avseende kön, ålder, dialektområde och utbildningsnivå. Emotionell prosodi undersöktes genom flera metoder: akustisk analys av grundtonsvariation samt deltagarnas egen såväl som lyssnares skattning av röstens uttrycksfullhet. I resultaten framkommer tendenser, som indikerar en skillnad mellan deltagarna med stroke i höger hemisfär och kontrollpersonerna. För deltagarna med stroke sågs mindre grundtonsvariation och lägre skattningar av röstens uttrycksfullhet. Då deltagarantalet var litet, bör resultaten tolkas med försiktighet. De tendenser till skillnader mellan försöks- och kontrollpersonerna som ses i resultaten motiverar dock för vidare studier.

Abstract [en]

Important aspects of communication, including emotional prosody, are regulated from the right hemisphere. However, the research in the area of emotional prosody has so far been rather limited. One of the aspects that have not been examined yet is the comparison of the participant’s own rating of voice expression with ratings by listeners. The aim of the study was to assess expressive emotional prosody after right-hemisphere stroke. Participants were three patients with right-hemisphere stroke and three controls without neurological conditions or problems regarding speech or voice. The groups of participants with stroke and the controls were matched regarding sex, age, dialect and level of education. Emotional prosody was examined using multiple methods: acoustic analysis of variation in fundamental frequency and the participants’ own as well as listeners’ rating of voice expression. The results show tendencies that indicate a difference between the participants with right-hemisphere stroke and the controls. The participants with stroke showed smaller variations in fundamental frequency and lower ratings of voice expression. Due to the small sample size in the present study, results should be treated with caution. However, the tendencies shown in the results regarding differences between subjects and controls would justify further studies.
