The human auditory cortex was much more responsive than the monkey cortex when they looked at the relative activity between tones and equivalent noisy sounds.
"Specifically, we found that the auditory system actively maintains the acoustic signal in auditory cortex, while concurrently making guesses about the identity of the words being said," says Gwilliams.
In 1993, Jastreboff and Hazell [3] introduced a neurophysiological model of tinnitus, assuming that once the abnormal signal of the auditory system is perceived by the subcortical nerve center, the auditory cortex (AC) will recognize this signal as important, and enhance its perception and evaluation.
In this study, an increase in MLAEP latencies (Na, Pa, and Nb) is noted in long-term mobile phone users, suggesting a delay in the conduction of auditory impulses from the level of the medial geniculate body to the auditory cortex. This indicates that long-term exposure to mobile phone radiations can significantly affect the thalamo-cortical nervous pathways present in the auditory system of the brain.
To better understand how the auditory cortex matures in the last trimester of gestation, the team of researchers turned to a large dataset collected at the St.
These results indicate that V1 receives suppressive inputs from the activated auditory cortex, most likely via direct corticocortical connections described above.
To summarize this section, it is probably not an exaggeration to say that the upper posterior part of the left temporal lobe and the secondary auditory cortex is implicated in auditory hallucinations.
* "When sound and touch were activated simultaneously, the activation of the auditory cortex was strongest.
Differential responses of primary auditory cortex in autism spectrum disorder with auditory hypersensitivity.
Deafness due to cortical origin is an extremely rare entity due to bilateral and wider representation of auditory cortex. It occurs due to damage to bilateral auditory cortices.
IC plays a strategic role in relaying and processing auditory information; indeed, receiving innervation from both the lateral lemniscus and the auditory cortex, the IC can be considered as an interface between the lower auditory pathway and the auditory cortex [15].

According to my experience and research yes it does, this hidden technology is not only capable of monitoring neural activities of our brains, it is also capable of stimulating brains precisely to induce voices (precise stimulation done to the auditory cortex, visions (precise stimulation done to the visual cortex), manipulate emotions, controlling the body (precise stimulation done to the motor cortex), smell, taste, thoughts etc...
And the better a person is at lipreading, the more neural activity there is in the brain's auditory cortex, scientists reported April 4.
