We recorded event-related potentials (ERPs) and magnetic fields (ERFs) of the human brain to determine whether top-down control could modulate the initial organization of sound representations in the auditory cortex. We presented identical sound stimulation and manipulated top-down processes by instructing participants to either ignore the sounds (Ignore condition), to detect pitch changes (Attend-pitch condition), or to detect violations of a repeating tone pattern (Attend-pattern condition… CONTINUE READING
