Sampling of brain regions. Schematic of the human brain indicating regions of the superior temporal gyrus sampled—superior temporal sulcus (STS - orange) and primary auditory cortex (PAC - teal). A section from the caudal portion of the temporal lobe was utilized for each case (the approximate position is noted by the dashed lines). In the same coronal section, tissue blocks for the PAC (dark teal) were sampled from Heschl’s gyrus (light teal) and blocks for the STS (dark orange) were sampled from the upper wall of the STS (light orange)
