Warren, J.D., Zielinski, Z.A., Green, G.G.R., Rauschecker, J.P. and Griffiths, T.D. (2002) Perception of sound-source motion by the human brain. Neuron, 34 (1). pp. 139-148. ISSN 0896-6273
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.
