Sensitivity of Single Neurons in Auditory Cortex to Contour: Toward a Neurophysiology of Music Perception

Abstract

The responses of single neurons in the primary (AI) and secondary (All) auditory cortical fields of waking cats were recorded during presentation of sequences of five iso-intensity tones. Tonal contour was varied by employing sequences that either increased or decreased monotonically in frequency, or in which contour was non-monotonic. The vast majority of… (More)
