Sensory experiences contribute to the development and specialization of signal processing capacities in the mammalian auditory system during a "critical period" of postnatal development. Earlier studies have shown that passive exposure to tonal stimuli during this postnatal epoch induces a large-scale expansion of the representations of those stimuli within the primary auditory cortex (A1) [Zhang LI, Bao S, Merzenich MM (2001) Persistent and specific influences of early acoustic environments on… CONTINUE READING
