Dear colleagues,

Here is a list of responses to my question last week about refs on
auditory cortex.  Thanks very much to all who replied.

Current Opinion in Neuroscience 1998.(They have lists of key papers for
each major part of the brain, including one on the central auditory

Arbib's "Handbook of Brain Theory and Neural Networks" is a good
starting point for anything up to 1995.

"The Auditory Cortex" by Lindsay Aitken, 1990, Chapman & Hall.... Most
data there from primates.
