The neuronal representation of pitch in primate auditory cortex
Pitch perception is critical for identifying and segregating auditory objects, especially in the context of music and speech. The perception of pitch is not unique to humans and has been… Expand
Neural representations of sinusoidal amplitude and frequency modulations in the primary auditory cortex of awake primates.
We investigated neural coding of sinusoidally modulated tones (sAM and sFM) in the primary auditory cortex (A1) of awake marmoset monkeys, demonstrating that there are systematic cortical… Expand
Neural response properties of primary, rostral, and rostrotemporal core fields in the auditory cortex of marmoset monkeys.
The core region of primate auditory cortex contains a primary and two primary-like fields (AI, primary auditory cortex; R, rostral field; RT, rostrotemporal field). Although it is reasonable to… Expand
Remodelling of hand representation in adult cortex determined by timing of tactile stimulation
THE primate somatosensory cortex, which processes tactile stimuli, contains a topographic representation of the signals it receives, but the way in which such maps are maintained is poorly… Expand
Neural substrates of vocalization feedback monitoring in primate auditory cortex
Vocal communication involves both speaking and hearing, often taking place concurrently. Vocal production, including human speech and animal vocalization, poses a number of unique challenges for the… Expand
Sensory-motor interaction in the primate auditory cortex during self-initiated vocalizations.
Little is known about sensory-motor interaction in the auditory cortex of primates at the level of single neurons and its role in supporting vocal communication. The present study investigated… Expand
Spectral integration in A1 of awake primates: neurons with single- and multipeaked tuning characteristics.
We investigated modulations by stimulus components placed outside of the classical receptive field in the primary auditory cortex (A1) of awake marmosets. Two classes of neurons were identified using… Expand
Neural coding of temporal information in auditory thalamus and cortex
How the brain processes temporal information embedded in sounds is a core question in auditory research. This article synthesizes recent studies from our laboratory regarding neural representations… Expand
Sonication-induced gelation of silk fibroin for cell encapsulation.
Purified native silk fibroin forms beta-sheet-rich, physically cross-linked, hydrogels from aqueous solution, in a process influenced by environmental parameters. Previously we reported gelation… Expand

In contrast to the visual system, the auditory system has longer subcortical pathways and more spiking synapses between the peripheral receptors and the cortex. This unique organization reflects the… Expand
