There are conflicting data on the timescale for the representation of adult zebra finch song. Acoustic structure and perturbation studies suggest that song is divided into discrete vocal elements, or syllables, lasting 50-200 ms. However, recordings in premotor telencephalic nucleus HVC (used as proper name) and RA (robust nucleus of arcopallium) suggest that song is represented by sparse, fine-grained bursting on the 5-10 ms timescale. We previously found patterns of timing variability that… CONTINUE READING
