The challenge for future researchers is to understand how this complex system in monkeys analyzes and utilizes auditory information. Expand
Comparative studies.
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. Expand
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. Expand
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.

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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
Topographic reorganization of somatosensory cortical areas 3b and 1 in adult monkeys following restricted deafferentation
Two to nine months after the median nerve was transected and ligated in adult owl and squirrel monkeys, the cortical sectors representing it within skin surface representations in Areas 3b and 1 wereExpand

This rev iew addresses questions about t he capacity of sensory and motor maps in the brains of adul t mammals to change as a resul t of alterations in the effectiveness of inputs, the availabilityExpand
Reorganization of retinotopic cortical maps in adult mammals after lesions of the retina.
The organization of the visual cortex has been considered to be highly stable in adult mammals. However, 5 degrees to 10 degrees lesions of the retina in the contralateral eye markedly altered theExpand
