Neural Correlates of Auditory Perception in Williams Syndrome: An fMRI Study
TLDR
We used functional magnetic resonance imaging to examine the neural basis of auditory processing of music and noise in WS patients and age-matched controls and found strikingly different patterns of neural organization between the groups. Expand
