Functionally homologous representation of vocalizations in the auditory cortex of humans and macaques

Bodin C, Trapeau R, Nazarian B, Sein J, Degiovanni X, Baurberg J, Rapha E, Renaud L, Giordano BL, Belin P (2021) Functionally homologous representation of vocalizations in the auditory cortex of humans and macaques. Current Biology

Bodin et al. report a functional homology in the cerebral processing of conspecific vocalizations by macaques and humans. Comparative fMRI reveals that both species possess bilateral anterior Temporal Voice Areas that not only prefer conspecific vocalizations but also categorize them apart from all other sounds in a functionally homologous manner.
