- Human cortical organization for processing vocalizations indicates representation of harmonic structure as a signal attributeJames W Lewis
Center for Advanced Imaging, West Virginia University, Morgantown, West Virginia 26506, USA
J Neurosci 29:2283-96. 2009..Thus, these results provide novel support for the presence of spectral templates, which may subserve a major role in the hierarchical processing of vocalizations as a distinct category of behaviorally relevant sound...
