  • The auditory mismatch negativity (MMN) is an event-related potential that reflects early processing of changes in acoustic stimulus features. Although the MMN has been well characterized by previous work, the number, roles, and anatomical locations of its cortical generators remain unresolved. Here, we report that the MMN elicited by occasional deviations in sound location is comprised of two temporally and anatomically distinct phases: an early phase with a generator posterior to auditory… CONTINUE READING
