The ability to recognize auditory objects like words and bird songs is thought to depend on neural responses that are selective between categories of the objects and tolerant of variation within those categories. To determine whether a hierarchy of increasing selectivity and tolerance exists in the avian auditory system, we trained European starlings (Sturnus vulgaris) to differentially recognize sets of songs, then measured extracellular single unit responses under urethane anesthesia in six… CONTINUE READING
