Our knowledge of this structure, though still sparse, paints a picture of an extremely complex brain region, probably the most complicated yet in the auditory pathway. This book is a collection of works summarising the latest developments in auditory cortex research and reviews the current state of knowledge about cortical anatomy, function and malfunction. The book highlights use of state-of-the-art technological methodologies in unravelling various facts about auditory cortex. It canvasses findings ranging from intracellular and extracellular electrophysiology, optical imaging, quantitative electroencephalography in addition to reviews of molecular techniques, functional imaging approaches and histological anatomy.
