Neural and behavioral investigations into timbre perception

Stephen M. Town, Jennifer K. Bizley
2013 Frontiers in Systems Neuroscience

Multiplexed and Robust Representations of Sound Features in Auditory Cortex

K. M. M. Walker, J. K. Bizley, A. J. King, J. W. H. Schnupp
2011 Journal of Neuroscience  
In this study, we investigate whether neurons in both core and belt areas of ferret auditory cortex can robustly represent the pitch, formant frequencies, or azimuthal location of artificial vowel sounds  ...  Finally, we observed that formant information is encoded in cortex earlier than pitch information, and we show that this time course matches ferrets' behavioral reaction time differences on a change detection  ...  earlier for timbre than for pitch cues in auditory cortex.  ...
