Conclusion

The human auditory cortex has attracted considerable attention in the past decade, and much progress has been made. The advent of structural and functional imaging techniques has facilitated the detailed study of the human auditory cortex and has permitted comparison with knowledge derived from other species. It seems clear that distinct auditory cortical areas exist in the human brain, but their boundaries and functional properties have yet to be identified. It also appears that important differences exist in auditory cortical functions in the two hemispheres. Finally, recent work has emphasized the modifiable nature of auditory cortical organization, yielding a complex and dynamic view of this important sensory system.
