Subdivisions of auditory cortex and processing streams in primates.
The challenge for future researchers is to understand how this complex system in monkeys analyzes and utilizes auditory information.

A variety of instruments have been developed for use in comparative studies of creativity in children, and the open-endedness of the test tasks and the universality of the stimuli have made them readily adaptable to different cultures.
Somatosensation in social perception
This Review focuses the limelight of social neuroscience on a different set of brain regions: the somatosensory cortices, which have anatomical connections that enable them to have a role in visual and auditory social perception.
Tonotopic organization, architectonic fields, and connections of auditory cortex in macaque monkeys
Neurons throughout a broad expanse of cortex were highly responsive to pure tones, and best frequencies could be determined for neurons in arrays of recording sites, as well as two systematic representations of tone frequencies.
Subdivisions of auditory cortex and ipsilateral cortical connections of the parabelt auditory cortex in macaque monkeys
Observations support the concept of dividing the auditory cortex into core, belt, and parabelt; provide evidence for including the rostral area in the core; suggest the existence of as many as seven or eight belt fields; provideevidence for at least two subdivisions of the parab belt; and identify regions of the temporal lobe involved in auditory processing.
Supplementary eye field as defined by intracortical microstimulation: Connections in macaques
In macaques, the frontal eye field and the recently defined supplementary eye field play a role in the production of eye movements and it was determined that in three cases the injection site was confined to the physiologically defined supplementaryEye field.
Architectonic identification of the core region in auditory cortex of macaques, chimpanzees, and humans
Although the architectonic appearance of the core areas did vary in certain respects across taxonomic groups, the numerous similarities made it possible to identify unambiguously a homologous cortical region in macaques, chimpanzees, and humans.

Physiological and anatomical approaches were combined in the same animals to reveal the locations, extents, and cortical connections of the frontal eye fields (FEF) in squirrel, owl, and macaque monkeys.
Frontal eye field as defined by intracortical microstimulation in squirrel monkeys, owl monkeys, and macaque monkeys: I. Subcortical connections
Connections that account for the parallel influence of the superior colliculus and the frontal eye field on visuomotor function are revealed and suggest that there has been little evolutionary change in subcortical connections of the frontal eyes fields since the time that these lines of primates diverged.
