String Segmentation in Humans

 When we here a novel language as sound sequence, we would never know where is the boundary between words. However, as we keep listening, we gradually find the boundaries we can hear out each word. This is the ability to segment continuous stream and this is essential when we acquire language.

 How this is possible and when this becomes possible in humans? We use multi-channel EEG recorder and optic topography instruments to elucidate this process and found that the interaction between pre-frontal cortex and basal ganglia is responsible for this process, and this is presumably the innate ability fully equipped at birth.
