- Left hemispheric dominance during auditory processing in a noisy
environment. Okamoto, Hidehiko; Stracke, Henning; Ross, Bernhard; Kakigi, Ryusuke; Pantev, Christo // BMC Biology;2007, Vol. 5, p52
Background: In daily life, we are exposed to different sound inputs simultaneously. During neural encoding in the auditory pathway, neural activities elicited by these different sounds interact with each other. In the present study, we investigated neural interactions elicited by masker and...
