Human subcortical auditory function provides a new conceptual framework for considering modularity

(p.269) Chapter 28 Human subcortical auditory function provides a new conceptual framework for considering modularity
Language and Music as Cognitive Systems

This chapter comments on the discussion in Chapter 27. It argues that the modularity debate has centred on the cortex, and seeks to widen the theoretical discussion of modularity by presenting research on the role of subcortical structures in auditory processing. It suggests that human subcortical auditory function can provide a new conceptual framework for studying modularity.

Keywords:   modularity, cortex, subcortical structures, auditory processing, human auditory function
