Whereas specialized frequency-encoding patterns in the human auditory cortex are generally accepted, termed tonotopicity, a similar principle of intensity encoding--amplitopicity--is debated controversially. This functional magnetic resonance imaging study describes the relationship of the activation volume and the spatial distribution of activated clusters under different sound pressure levels (SPL) across the temporal plane including the transverse temporal gyrus (TTG). Nine healthy subjects… CONTINUE READING
