Thalamic functional tuning of the cortex in dichotic listening tasks.

Abstract

In dichotic listening tasks, the (dominant) right ear's superiority in processing verbal stimuli has been attributed to its direct access to the linguistically dominant left hemisphere. The roles played by the extralinguistic factors, such as induced attentiveness and functional tuning of the auditory system, have not been carefully examined. The evidence… (More)
