Toward a Song Code Evidence for a Syllabic Representation in the Canary Brain

  title={Toward a Song Code Evidence for a Syllabic Representation in the Canary Brain},
  author={Sidarta T. Ribeiro and Guillermo A. Cecchi and Marcelo O. Magnasco and Claudio V. Mello},
We show that presentation of individual canary song syllables results in distinct expression patterns of the immediate-early gene ZENK in the caudomedial neostriatum (NCM) of adult canaries. Information on the spatial distribution and labeling of stained cells provides for a classification of ZENK patterns that (1) accords to the organization of stimuli into families, (2) preserves the stimuli intrafamily relationships, and (3) confers salience to natural over artificial stimuli, resulting in a… CONTINUE READING
