In the human brain, auditory sensory memory has been extensively studied using a well-defined component of event-related potential named the mismatch negativity (MMN). The MMN is generated in the auditory and frontal cortices in response to deviant stimuli. In monkeys, cortical N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptors have a central role in the generation of the MMN. MMN-like responses have also been recorded in other animals, including rats. The present study aimed at determining whether the MMN… CONTINUE READING
