We are able to rapidly recognize and localize the many sounds in our environment. We can describe any of these sounds in terms of various independent “features” such as their loudness, pitch, or position in space. However, we still know surprisingly little about how neurons in the auditory brain, specifically the auditory cortex, might form representations of these perceptual characteristics from the information that the ear provides about sound acoustics. In this article, the authors examine… Expand
