Summary "There has been substantial progress in understanding the contributions of the auditory fore brain to hearing, sound localization, communication, emotive behavior, and cognition. 'The Auditory Cortex' covers the latest knowledge about the auditory fore brain, including the auditory cortex as well as the medial geniculate body in the thalamus. This book will cover all important aspects of the auditory fore brain organization and function, integrating the auditory thalamus and cortex into a smooth, coherent whole"--Provided by publisher
