Dissociation of Detection and Discrimination of Pure Tones following Bilateral Lesions of Auditory Cortex
TLDR
The results indicate that auditory cortex lowers just-noticeable differences for loudness discrimination by approximately 5 dB but is not necessary for tone detection in quiet.
Hierarchical Auditory Processing Directed Rostrally along the Monkey's Supratemporal Plane
TLDR
The pattern of results supports the proposal that the STP contains a rostrally directed, hierarchically organized auditory processing stream, with gradually increasing stimulus selectivity, and that this stream extends from the primary auditory area to the temporal pole.
Processing of sound sequences in macaque auditory cortex: response enhancement.
TLDR
It is suggested that response enhancement, in addition to response attenuation, provides a basic neural mechanism involved in the cortical processing of the temporal structure of sounds.
Investigations of the effects of sequential tones on the responses of neurons in the guinea pig primary auditory cortex
TLDR
This thesis investigates how the auditory system processes sounds that occur sequentially with a focus on how the responses of neurons in the primary auditory cortex ‘adapt’ when there are two or more tones.
Corticostriatal connections of the superior temporal region in rhesus monkeys
TLDR
Compared with the rostral and middle parts of the superior temporal gyrus, the caudal portion has little connectivity to the tail of the caUDate nucleus, and differential patterns of corticostriatal connectivity are consistent with functional specialization at the cortical level.
Association fiber pathways to the frontal cortex from the superior temporal region in the rhesus monkey
TLDR
The results demonstrated that the rostral part of the superior temporal gyrus projects to the proisocortical areas of the orbital and medial frontal cortex, as well as to the nearby orbital areas 13, 12, and 11, and to medial areas 9, 10, and 14.
Time course of forward masking tuning curves in cat primary auditory cortex.
TLDR
The results show that the ability of cortical cells to respond with an excitatory activity depends on the temporal stimulus context, and differential sensitivity to temporal sound sequences within the receptive field of cortex cells as well as across different cells could contribute to the neural processing of temporally structured stimuli.
Successive-signal biasing for a learned sound sequence
TLDR
This study shows that cortical areas are not representationally static but, to the contrary, can be biased moment by moment in time as a function of behavioral context.

TLDR
The history of research that has used behavioral tests before and after ablation of auditory centers or transection of neural pathways in order to understand the neural basis of auditory discrimination may be divided into four periods.
