Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Sub-cortical auditory processes are more dynamic than typically thought. As discussed in this article, they interact with other modalities and factors such as attention, visual influence and experience. The role of sub-cortical auditory processes in perception and cognition is far from understood, but available data suggest that they relate to cognitive processes involved in language and music, rather than to specific aspects of fine-grained auditory perception. Taken together, the evidence challenge some of the assumptions embedded in current conceptualization of APD.
