In Loving Memory of Matt Perry (March 1981 - September 2005)
In honor of the neuroscientist who delved into the mysteries and whims of life with wholehearted delight.
Thank you to one who touched the minds he sought to understand. As a true inquirer into philosophy,
pharmacology and literature, Mat enriched rats as well as people.
It is an honor to have shared a common path with you.
We wish to thank all the members of the Kilgard Lab behavioral team. Research supported by NIH R21#1R15DC00662401

The current experiments have examined the ability of rats to perform discriminations among complex sounds, including tone-noise sequences and speech stimuli. Understanding how normal animals are able to discriminate complex sounds is necessary in order to fully understand the auditory cortex and how injury, learning or plasticity can change perception and cortical functioning.
