  • Auditory experience is critical for vocal learning in songbirds as in humans. Therefore, in a search for neural mechanisms for song learning and recognition, the auditory response properties of neurons in the anterior forebrain (AF) pathway of the songbird brain were investigated. This pathway plays an essential but poorly understood role during the period of song development when auditory feedback is most crucial. Single-unit recordings demonstrated that both the lateral magnocellular nucleus… CONTINUE READING
