We assessed the human brain network for sound-motion processing using the same virtual stimulus in three independent functional imaging experiments. All experiments show a bilateral posterior network of activation, including planum temporale (PT) and parieto-temporal operculum (PTO). This was demonstrated in contrasts between sound movement and two control conditions: externalized stationary stimuli (in the midline or to the side of the head) and midline sounds within the head with similar spectro-temporal structure. We suggest specific computational mechanisms in PT for disambiguation of the intrinsic spectro-temporal features of a sound and the spectro-temporal effect of sound movement. The results support the existence of a posteriorly directed temporo-parietal pathway for obligatory perceptual processing of sound-source motion.
