The auditory system in humans and animals makes virtually no discrimination of phase changes in the structure of monaurally presented sound signals. However, electrophysiological studies have demonstrated marked changes in the responses of the central parts of the auditory system when the phase structure of the signal changes during presentation of the same(More)
The aim of the present study is to test whether mismatch negativity (MMN) response can be elicited by changes in auditory motion dynamics. The discrimination of auditory motion patterns was investigated using psychophysical and electrophysiological methods in the same group of subjects. Auditory event-related potentials (ERP) were recorded for stationary(More)
In experiments on anaesthetized cats, studies have been made of intracellular and extracellular responses of single units in the auditory cortex during dichotic stimulation simulating sound source motion. Responses of some cortical units exhibit strong dependence on the signal parameters related to spatial and directional characteristics of simulated sound(More)
The spike responses of individual neurons in the primary auditory cortex were studied in anesthetized cats during exposure to stationary and moving stimuli with static or dynamically changing interaural delays (deltaT). Static stimuli were tones and clicks. Dynamic stimuli were created using series of synphase and antiphase clicks with interaural delays(More)
Lateralization of moving fused auditory images (FAIs) was studied under dichotic stimulation, with FAI movement from the right and left ears to midline. The movement was produced by the gradual change of interaural time delay (from +/- 630 to 0 microseconds) in a binaurally presented click train in which a constant interaural intensity difference (IID)(More)
In anaesthesized guinea pigs the evoked potentials of the auditory cortex were studied in a forward masking paradigm. In-phase and out-of-phase binaurally presented clicks with interaural time delay (ITD) were used as masker, in-phase click with ITD = 0 served as probe signal. Addition of the masking stimulus suppressed the probe-evoked response that(More)
Evoked potentials in the inferior colliculus and auditory areas of the cortex were studied in anesthetized guinea pigs and long-latency auditory evoked potentials (LAEP) were studied in waking humans using sequential binaural presentation of pairs of clicks--the masker and the masked signal--with a variable interval between them, to provide the conditions(More)
The current MMN study investigates whether brain lateralization during automatic discrimination of sound stimuli moving at different velocities is consistent with one of the three models of asymmetry: the right-hemispheric dominance model, the contralateral dominance model, or the neglect model. Auditory event-related potentials (ERPs) were recorded for(More)
The aim of the present work was to assess interhemisphere asymmetry of the N1, P2, and N250 components of auditory event-related potentials (ERP) and mismatch negativity (MMN) in passive discrimination between moving sound stimuli in an oddball paradigm. Stimulus movement was created using a linear increase in the interaural time delay ΔT in dichotically(More)
