The planum temporale as a computational hub

  title={The planum temporale as a computational hub},
  author={Timothy D. Griffiths and Jason D Warren},
  journal={Trends in Neurosciences},
It is increasingly recognized that the human planum temporale is not a dedicated language processor, but is in fact engaged in the analysis of many types of complex sound. We propose a model of the human planum temporale as a computational engine for the segregation and matching of spectrotemporal patterns. The model is based on segregating the components of the acoustic world and matching these components with learned spectrotemporal representations. Spectrotemporal information derived from… CONTINUE READING
