It also affords a unique opportunity to investigate brain function. Here we describe how SEEG can be used to investigate cognitive processes in human subjects.

Temporal Processing in the Auditory Core: Transformation or Segregation? Journal of Neurophysiology. Dec, 2011 | Pubmed ID: 21795614 Scott et al. (J Neurophysiol 105: 712-730, 2011) examine temporal processing in auditory Core fields AI and R in the macaque, arguing that temporal properties are the most salient functional differences between these areas. How these results imply transformation of information between AI and R or whether these fields may be processing divergent information somewhat separately is discussed.
Information Transfer Along the Ventral Auditory Processing Stream in the Awake Macaque Conference Proceedings : ... Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society. IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society. Annual Conference. 2012 | Pubmed ID: 23367095 Few studies have examined the physiology of the auditory cortical processing streams in the context of information transfer among cortical areas. This study examines information transfer in two cortical areas in the ventral auditory processing stream in an awake macaque. We show conditional information examined over different durations of neural responses provides insight into the time scale and direction of cortical hierarchical processing.
