Nonauditory Events of a Behavioral Procedure Activate Auditory Cortex of Highly Trained Monkeys
TLDR
It is speculated that the multimodal corepresentation in the auditory cortex has arisen from the intensive practice of the subjects with the behavioral procedure and that it facilitates the performance of audiomotor tasks in proficient subjects.
Neural sources of focused attention in visual search.
TLDR
Findings are consistent with the proposal that parietal areas are used to initiate a shift of attention within a visual search array and that the focusing of attention is implemented by extrastriate areas of the occipital and inferior temporal cortex.
Task-related and item-related brain processes of memory retrieval.
TLDR
The results provide converging hemodynamic and electrophysiological evidence for the distinction of task- and item-related processes, show that they map onto spatially and temporally distinct patterns of brain activity, and clarify the hemispheric encoding/retrieval asymmetry (HERA) model of prefrontal encoding and retrieval asymmetry.
Processing of sound sequences in macaque auditory cortex: response enhancement.
TLDR
It is suggested that response enhancement, in addition to response attenuation, provides a basic neural mechanism involved in the cortical processing of the temporal structure of sounds.
Successful Verbal Encoding into Episodic Memory Engages the Posterior Hippocampus: A Parametrically Analyzed Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Study
TLDR
It is demonstrated that successful encoding into episodic memory engages neural circuits in the posterior part of the hippocampus, similar to previous functional neuroimaging studies.
Coding properties of two classes of afferent nerve fibers: high-frequency electroreceptors in the electric fish, Eigenmannia.
TLDR
The known and the candidate codes by which neurons can represent information in streams of nerve impulses are cataloged, but for none of these, other than the familiar frequency coders, is a quantitative characterization available of the behavior of the impulse train as a function of intensity.
Phonetic Perception and the Temporal Cortex
TLDR
Three independent studies additionally demonstrating hemodynamic responses in the vicinity of the planum temporale (PT) are reported, compatible with the hypothesis that the STS contains neurons specialized for speech perception and in the analysis of phonetic features, namely the voice-onset-time.
A movement-sensitive area in auditory cortex
TLDR
Using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), a higher-order field is found in the right auditory cortex that is activated by sound motion significantly more than other fields of the auditory cortex, which distinguishes whether a sound pattern is moving or stationary.
Functional Organization of Auditory Cortex in the Mongolian Gerbil (Meriones unguiculatus). I. Electrophysiological Mapping of Frequency Representation and Distinction of Fields
TLDR
The frequency representation within the auditory cortex of the anaesthetized Mongolian gerbil was studied using standard microelectrode mapping techniques and shows that the organization of the gerbils auditory cortex is highly elaborate, with parcellation into fields as complex as in cat or primates.
