Dear Eliot / (list), We found some evidences that memory based pitch-orientation detection (see. Naatanen R. et al., (2001) Trends in Neurosciences 24(5), 283-288) might take place in human auditory cortex. (Korzyukov al., (2002) Intern.Journal of Psychophysiology vol.45, No 1-2, p.103). If anybody is interested in more details I will be happy to answer. I would be very appreciated for any information about memory to the pitch-orientation (any species).
