Human Cortical Organization for Processing Vocalizations Indicates Representation of Harmonic Structure as a Signal Attribute
The ability to detect and rapidly process harmonic sounds, which in nature are typical of animal vocalizations and speech, can be critical for communication among conspecifics and for survival.Expand

Auditory object salience: human cortical processing of non-biological action sounds and their acoustic signal attributes
Whether viewed or heard, an object in action can be segmented as a distinct salient event based on a number of different sensory cues. In the visual system, several low-level attributes of an imageExpand

Cortical Networks Representing Object Categories and High-level Attributes of Familiar Real-world Action Sounds
In contrast to visual object processing, relatively little is known about how the human brain processes everyday real-world sounds, transforming highly complex acoustic signals into representationsExpand

Humans Mimicking Animals: A Cortical Hierarchy for Human Vocal Communication Sounds
Numerous species possess cortical regions that are most sensitive to vocalizations produced by their own kind (conspecifics). In humans, the superior temporal sulci (STSs) putatively representExpand

Using naturalistic utterances to investigate vocal communication processing and development in human and non-human primates
Humans and several non-human primates possess cortical regions that are most sensitive to vocalizations produced by their own kind (conspecifics). However, the use of speech and other broadly definedExpand

Multifunctional Setup for Studying Human Motor Control Using Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, Electromyography, Motion Capture, and Virtual Reality.
The study of neuromuscular control of movement in humans is accomplished with numerous technologies. Non-invasive methods for investigating neuromuscular function include transcranial magneticExpand

Electrophysiological Evidence of Early Cortical Sensitivity to Human Conspecific Mimic Voice as a Distinct Category of Natural Sound.
Purpose From an anthropological perspective of hominin communication, the human auditory system likely evolved to enable special sensitivity to sounds produced by the vocal tracts of humanExpand
Early and Late Stage Mechanisms for Vocalization Processing in the Human Auditory System
Early and Late Stage Mechanisms for Vocalization Processing in the Human Auditory System William James Talkington The human auditory system is able to rapidly process incoming acoustic information,Expand
