Nonauditory Events of a Behavioral Procedure Activate Auditory Cortex of Highly Trained Monkeys
A central tenet in brain research is that early sensory cortex is modality specific, and, only in exceptional cases, such as deaf and blind subjects or professional musicians, is influenced by otherExpand

Task-related and item-related brain processes of memory retrieval.
In all cognitive tasks, general task-related processes operate throughout a given task on all items, whereas specific item-related processes operate differentially on individual items. In typicalExpand

Neural sources of focused attention in visual search.
Previous studies of visual search in humans using event-related potentials (ERPs) have revealed an ERP component called 'N2pc' (180-280 ms) that reflects the focusing of attention onto potentialExpand

Successful Verbal Encoding into Episodic Memory Engages the Posterior Hippocampus: A Parametrically Analyzed Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Study
The medial temporal lobe (MTL) is essential for episodic memory encoding, as evidenced by memory deficits in patients with MTL damage. However, previous functional neuroimaging studies have eitherExpand

Coding properties of two classes of afferent nerve fibers: high-frequency electroreceptors in the electric fish, Eigenmannia.
We show that neurons can encode information about the intensity of stimuli in other ways than by the familiar gradation of intervals between impulses. Expand

Processing of sound sequences in macaque auditory cortex: response enhancement.
It is well established that the tone-evoked response of neurons in auditory cortex can be attenuated if another tone is presented several hundred milliseconds before. The present study explores inExpand

Phonetic Perception and the Temporal Cortex
Recent functional neuroimaging studies have emphasized the role of the different areas within the left superior temporal sulcus (STS) for the perception of various speech stimuli. We report here theExpand

A movement-sensitive area in auditory cortex
It is important to recognize sound patterns, regardless of their position and motion. The ability to locate sound sources and track their motion involves various levels of the auditory pathways,.Expand

Functional Organization of Auditory Cortex in the Mongolian Gerbil (Meriones unguiculatus). I. Electrophysiological Mapping of Frequency Representation and Distinction of Fields
The frequency representation within the auditory cortex of the anaesthetized Mongolian gerbil (Meriones unguiculatus) was studied using standard microelectrode (essentially multiunit) mappingExpand

Sound-level-dependent representation of frequency modulations in human auditory cortex: a low-noise fMRI study.
Recognition of sound patterns must be largely independent of level and of masking or jamming background sounds. Auditory patterns of relevance in numerous environmental sounds, species-specificExpand
