Auditory cortex of squirrel monkey: Response patterns of single cells to species-specific vocalizations

John D. Newman

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Most of the neurons tested in the superior temporal cortex of awake squirrel monkeys responded to recorded species-specific vocalizations. Some cells responded with temporally complex patterns to many vocalizations. Other cells responded with simpler patterns to only one call. Most cells lay between these two extremes. On-line deletion of parts of a vocalization revealed the role of temporal interactions in determining the nature of some responses.
