How does the brain learn categorization for sounds? The same way it does for images

(National Science Foundation) Categorization, or the recognition that individual objects share similarities and can be grouped together, is fundamental to how we make sense of the world. Previous research has revealed how the brain categorizes images. Now, researchers funded by the National Science Foundation have discovered that the brain categorizes sounds in much the same way.
