Integration of Voco-Auditory Centers in Song Birds
Among the problems of neural processing in auditory systems of animals, one of the most interesting is their perceptual strategy in sound communication. Avian vocalizations are developed along their own strategies of auditory perception (song ontogeny). The song ontogeny will be referred to the characteristic integration of the neural substrate of vocalization and hearing.
