Singing in the Brain

MIT neuroscientists have identified a population of neurons in the human brain that lights up when we hear singing, but not other types of music. These neurons, found in the auditory cortex, appear to respond to the specific combination of voice and music, but not to either regular speech or instrumental music. Exactly what they are doing is unknown and will require more work to uncover, the researchers say.

Humans, Monkeys, Guinea Pigs Experience Sound Similarly

Speech sounds elicit comparable neural responses and stimulate the same region in the brain of humans, macaques, and guinea pigs, a multidisciplinary group of University of Pittsburgh researchers reported in the journal “eNeuro.” The finding could help pave the way for better understanding and diagnosis of auditory processing deficits.
