Sound categorization is essential for auditory behaviors like acoustic communication, but its genesis within the auditory pathway is not well understood-especially for learned natural categories like vocalizations, which often share overlapping acoustic features that must be distinguished (e.g., speech). We use electrophysiological mapping and single-unit… CONTINUE READING
