Cortical representations of pitch in monkeys and humans

Abstract

Pitch perception is crucial for vocal communication, music perception, and auditory object processing in a complex acoustic environment. How pitch is represented in the cerebral cortex has for a long time remained an unanswered question in auditory neuroscience. Several lines of evidence now point to a distinct non-primary region of auditory cortex in primates that contains a cortical representation of pitch.
