Figure 3

Top views (projection onto a plane; nose is on top and right side on the right) of 16–32 Hz band topographies from ~100 to 650 ms post stimulus onset are shown for unrounded (upper row) and rounded vowels (lower row). The event-related desynchronization (ERD, blue) is markedly sustained in rounded vowels and most prominent over left anterior sites (scaling 110 - 90% relative power change, color steps indicating 2% change; ERS, event-related synchronization). The grey background highlights the time range with the most pronounced ERD.
