Pitch perception is an important component of hearing, allowing us to appreciate melodies and harmonies as well as recognize prosodic cues in speech. Multiple studies over the last decade have suggested that pitch is represented by a pitch-processing center in auditory cortex. However, recent data (Barker D, Plack CJ, Hall DA. Cereb Cortex.
