Christian will talk about studying the neural basis of phoneme processing in continuous speech, focusing on MEG and EEG. Relatively recent methodological developments allow us to deconvolve brain responses associated with various features of continuous, narrative speech. This allows us to study neural processing of speech during natural listening to, for example, an audiobook. After introducing the methods Christian will discuss a few studies relevant for phoneme processing and focus on our recent paper that analyzed responses related to lexical processing of phonemes
