A Canadian study is trying to find a way to mitigate the harmful effects of surrounding noise during a discussion.

To improve speech understanding through ambient noise, it is necessary to stimulate the left ventral premotor cortex which was until now known to produce the sounds of speech, reveals Pascale Tremblay, professor and researcher at the CERVO research center of the Laval University in Quebec City and co-author of the study Better understand through noise.

In fact, the difficulty is not in the ability to hear […] it is because they cannot distinguish the sounds.
