  1. Neural Coding and Perception of Learned Vocalizations
    SARAH M WOOLLEY; Fiscal Year: 2010
    ..The neural mechanisms of vocal perception that are described in this work may suggest candidate mechanisms for how auditory training alters human brain processing of speech sounds and how speech acquisition shapes speech processing. ..
