Dear list members, Two years ago, many of you showed an interest in octave lamination in the auditory thalamus. Today, I can add that physiological data also show a strong impact of this lamination on cortical auditory processing. The data were published in 1999 and 2000. However, before 2001, thalamic octave lamination had never been mentioned explicitly in a journal. So it is no surprise that in 1999 and 2000 the authors did not present any suggestions as to the causes of their findings. After 2000 the authors worked on other projects, and so it happened that the thalamocortical octave connection remained completely absent from the literature for the past 12 years. The main findings and a figure are now available as an update at the end of this article: http://www.neuroscience-of-music.se/Octave-History.htm Martin ------------------------------------------- Martin Braun Neuroscience of Music S-671 95 Klässbol Sweden email: nombraun@xxxxxxxx web site: http://www.neuroscience-of-music.se/index.htm
