Sorry, I mean "AP training may lead to certain 'pruning' of the RIGHT planum temporale in a critical period." See

Keenan, J., Thangaraj, V., Halpern, A. & Schlaug, G. Absolute pitch and planum temporale. Neuroimage 14, 1402-1408 (2001).

By the way, I suggest that subjects with AP and RP would not have a smaller right planum temporale. Is there research about the correlation between the surface area of right planum temporale and P300? They may reflect the differences between RP and non-RP, rather than AP and non-AP.
