Coding of repetitive transients by auditory cortex on posterolateral superior temporal gyrus in humans: an intracranial electrophysiology study.
TLDR
The data indicate that responses of non-core auditory cortex of PLST represent temporal stimulus features in multiple ways, including an isomorphic representation of periodicity, a representation based on increases in non-phase-locked activity, and spatially distributed patterns of activity.
Representation of temporal sound features in the human auditory cortex
TLDR
Evidence for neural coding of temporal information at the level of the core auditory cortex in humans suggests possible physiological counterparts to perceptual categorical boundaries for periodic acoustic stimuli and suggests hemispheric asymmetry in temporal cortical processing.
Functional Mapping of the Human Auditory Cortex: fMRI Investigation of a Patient with Auditory Agnosia from Trauma to the Inferior Colliculus
TLDR
Auditory agnosia reflects dysfunction of the auditory ventral stream, and leftward localization bias, preserved audiovisual integration, and phoneme perception are explained by preserved processing in her right auditory dorsal stream.
Sensitivity to temporal modulation rate and spectral bandwidth in the human auditory system: fMRI evidence.
TLDR
These results challenge simple hierarchical models, in that BB stimuli evoked stronger responses in primary auditory cortex (and subcortical structures) rather than nonprimary auditory cortex, and the strong preference for slow modulation rates in nonprimary cortex demonstrates the compelling global sensitivity of auditory cortex to modulation rates that are dominant in the principal signals that the authors process, e.g., speech.
Intrahemispheric cortico-cortical connections of the human auditory cortex
TLDR
The human early-stage auditory cortical connectivity, as revealed by in vivo DSI tractography, has strong similarities with that of non-human primates and is compatible with segregated processing streams and lateralization of cognitive functions.
Intracerebral evidence of rhythm transform in the human auditory cortex
TLDR
Observations show that, even though part of these neural transforms of rhythms could already take place in subcortical auditory processes, the earliest auditory cortical processes shape the neural representation of rhythmic inputs in favor of the emergence of a periodic beat.
Temporal binding of sound emerges out of anatomical structure and synaptic dynamics of auditory cortex
TLDR
Computational modeling of auditory cortex is used to investigate how selectivity to spectrally and temporally complex stimuli is achieved and suggests that temporal binding arises out of the serial structure typical to the auditory cortex, synaptic adaptation, and inhibitory interactions between microcolumns.

Temporal envelope processing in the human left and right auditory cortices.
TLDR
The results provide strong physiological support to the idea that the human auditory system decomposes the temporal envelope of sounds into its constituting AM components, and provide a physiological foundation for claims of functional specialization of auditory areas based on previous population measures.
Auditory cortex on the human posterior superior temporal gyrus
TLDR
Electrical stimulation of HG resulted in short‐latency EPs in an area that overlaps PLST, indicating that PLST receives a corticocortical input, either directly or indirectly, from HG.
Serial and parallel processing in the human auditory cortex: a magnetoencephalographic study.
TLDR
The results suggested a serial model of auditory processing along the medio-lateral axis of the supratemporal plane and implied the existence of several parallel streams running postero-superiorly (from the PAC to the belt region and then to the posterior STG, PPC or PT) and anteriorly (PAC-belt-anterior STG).
Spectral and temporal processing in human auditory cortex.
Hierarchical processing suggests that spectrally and temporally complex stimuli will evoke more activation than do simple stimuli, particularly in non-primary auditory fields. This hypothesis was
Spectral and temporal processing in human auditory cortex.
TLDR
Results indicated that the core auditory cortex in both hemispheres responded to temporal variation, while the anterior superior temporal areas bilaterally responded to the spectral variation, confirming the specialization of the left-hemisphere auditory cortex for rapid temporal processing.
Neural representations of temporally asymmetric stimuli in the auditory cortex of awake primates.
TLDR
The findings of this study suggest that rapid acoustic transients embedded in complex sounds can be represented by discharge rates of cortical neurons instead of or in the absence of stimulus-synchronized discharges.
Representation of the temporal envelope of sounds in the human brain.
TLDR
Overall, this study shows that the temporal envelope of sounds is processed by both distinct (hierarchically organized series of filters) and shared (high and low AM frequencies eliciting different responses at the same cortical locus) neural substrates.
