Auditory sensory memory is a critical first stage in auditory perception that permits listeners to integrate incoming acoustic information with stored representations of preceding auditory events. Here, we investigated the neural circuits of sensory memory using behavioral and electrophysiological measures of auditory processing in patients with unilateral brain damage to dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, posterior association cortex, or the hippocampus. We used a neurophysiological marker of an… Expand
Neural Correlates of Audiovisual Sensory Integration
TLDR
Findings suggest that the bilateral occipital-parietal conjunction cortex is responsible for matching information input from multiple modalities during audiovisual sensory integration. Expand
Neural circuits in auditory and audiovisual memory
TLDR
Findings suggest a critical role for the VLPFC in the processing, integrating, and retaining of communication information for both auditory and audiovisual working memory. Expand
Neuronal substrates of sensory gating within the human brain
TLDR
These findings show that the hippocampus proper contributes to sensory gating, albeit during a time window following neocortical habituation processes, with an early phase subserved by the temporo-parietal and prefrontal cortex and a later phase mediated by the hippocampus. Expand
Graded Visual Attention Modulates Brain Responses Evoked by Task-irrelevant Auditory Pitch Changes
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the brain's response to task-irrelevant sensory changes is strongly influenced by intermodal attentional demands. Expand
High gamma activity in response to deviant auditory stimuli recorded directly from human cortex.
TLDR
It is suggested that the high gamma oscillations are sensory-induced neocortical ripples, similar in physiological origin to the well-studied ripples of the hippocampus. Expand
Temporal dynamics of selective attention during dichotic listening.
TLDR
Neuromagnetic source analysis revealed attention-related activity in a cortical network including primary auditory cortices, posterior superior temporal gyrus, planum temporale, and the IPL were prominently involved in stimulus selection, whereas medial frontal regions were linked to initiation of behavioral responses and sustained activity in IFG suggested a role in attentional control. Expand
Sensory gating in the human hippocampal and rhinal regions
TLDR
This study provides the first evidence of an activation of the rhinal cortex after simple auditory stimulation and provides new evidence that theactivation of the medial temporal lobe structures occurs at a later stage than that of the neocortex. Expand
The Functional Organization of Auditory Working Memory as Revealed by fMRI
TLDR
The results suggest that auditory spatial and identity dissociations as revealed by functional imaging may be dependent to some degree on the type of processing being carried out. Expand
Age-related changes in processing auditory stimuli during visual attention: evidence for deficits in inhibitory control and sensory memory.
TLDR
Age-related changes in processing task-irrelevant auditory stimuli are consistent with the inhibitory deficit hypothesis and suggest that impaired inhibitory control of sensory input may play a role in the age-related declines in performance during selective attention tasks. Expand
Transient inhibition of the cerebellum impairs change-detection processes: Cerebellar contributions to sensorimotor integration
TLDR
The role of the cerebellum is tested by examining incoming sensory stimuli being unattended by the participant to find out whether it is involved in attentive change-detection processes that are critical for a wide-range of everyday processes. Expand

Lesions of frontal cortex diminish the auditory mismatch negativity.
TLDR
The results suggest that DPFCx andDPFCx-temporal projections play a critical role in involuntary orienting to physical changes in sequences of non-attended auditory stimuli. Expand
Neurophysiologic Bases of Speech Discrimination
TLDR
This work has demonstrated that the MMN provides information about the central processing of fine acoustic differences, the neuroanatomic pathways that encode acoustic change, central auditory processing in the presence of peripheral hearing deficits, and central auditory system plasticity. Expand
Auditory association cortex lesions impair auditory short-term memory in monkeys.
TLDR
Monkeys that were trained to perform auditory and visual short-term memory tasks (delayed matching-to-sample) received lesions of the auditory association cortex in the superior temporal gyrus, and all monkeys could discriminate sounds closer in frequency than those used in the auditory memory task. Expand
Deviant auditory stimuli activate human left and right auditory cortex differently.
TLDR
It is suggested that the bilateral MMF components originating in the supratemporal cortex are feature specific whereas the right-hemisphere parietal component reflects more global auditory change detection. Expand
Attention modulates auditory pattern memory as indexed by event-related brain potentials.
TLDR
The role of selective attention on auditory pattern processing was investigated using the mismatch negativity, an event-related brain potential component associated with sensory memory that modulates auditory pattern memory. Expand
, Mishkin M:Comparison of superior temporal and inferior prefrontal lesions on auditory and non-auditory tasks in rhesus monkeys.
TLDR
Whereas the impairment after prefrontal damage was attributable to a non-sensory disorder characterized by perseverative interference, the effects of superior temporal damage were consistent with a disturbance in the auditory process itself together with a minor loss in visual function. Expand
Contribution of human hippocampal region to novelty detection
THE ability to respond to unexpected stimuli (the 'orienting response') is a fundamental characteristic of mammalian behaviour1, but the brain mechanisms by which novelty is detected remain poorlyExpand
Detection of stimulus deviance within primate primary auditory cortex: intracortical mechanisms of mismatch negativity (MMN) generation
TLDR
The present study demonstrates that primary auditory cortex also plays an important role in processing the relationships between stimuli, and thus participates in cognitive, as well as purely sensory, processing of auditory information. Expand
Dissociation of temporal and frontal components in the human auditory N1 wave: a scalp current density and dipole model analysis.
TLDR
The dissociation of an exogenous, obligatory frontal component from the sensory-specific response in the auditory N1 suggests that parallel processes served by distinct neural systems are activated during acoustic stimulation. Expand
