    ..This was attributed to the absence of interference from an auditory coherent whole. The results are consistent with the presence of abnormal interactions between local and global auditory perception in ASD...

    Jessica M Foxton
    Auditory Group, School of Neurology, Neurobiology and Psychiatry, University of Newcastle upon Tyne Medical School, Framlington Place, Newcastle upon Tyne NE2 4HH, United Kingdom
    Curr Biol 14:322-5. 2004
    ..Further studies are required to determine whether pitch-contour training is effective in improving speech and melody perception...

    Brain 127:801-10. 2004
    ..In contrast, no abnormalities were identified in the perceptual organization of pitch. The pitch deficits identified are able to account for the music perception difficulties in this disorder, and implicate deficient cortical processing...

    Jessica M Foxton
    Auditory Group, University of Newcastle upon Tyne, Framlington Place, Newcastle NE2 4HH, UK
    Brain Cogn 62:24-9. 2006
    ..These results suggest that the rhythm deficits in congenital amusia result from the pitch-variations in music...

    Aniruddh D Patel
    The Neurosciences Institute, San Diego, CA, USA
    Brain Cogn 59:310-3. 2005
    ..Thus it appears that the dissociation between spoken and musical pitch perception in tone-deaf individuals is due to a deficit at a higher level than simple pitch-change detection...
