    The intensity of a noise-induced startle response can be reduced by the presentation of a stimulus immediately before the noise (“prepulse inhibition” or PPI). We used a form of PPI to study the effects of endothelin-induced damage to auditory cortex on the discrimination of human speech sounds by rats. The analysis of individual differences in performance by multiple regression suggests that some of the temporal processing required to discriminate speech sounds is concentrated anteroventrally in the right A1. These results also confirm that PPI can be adapted to studies of the brain mechanisms involved in the processing of speech and other complex sounds.
