The functions of the fields of the mammalian auditory cortex in sound perception and recognition are unknown. We used Fos (a protein of the inducible immediate-early gene c-fos) as a cellular marker of activated brain areas to show in the mouse (Mus domesticus) that sound is processed differentially in auditory cortical fields according to its actual significance in a behavioral context. Recognition, compared with perception of exactly the same sound, produced significantly less but well… CONTINUE READING
