Humans and subhuman primates have expanded the basal nuclei (through evolution) makes finer analysis of sensory objects Neocortex – crude aspect for sensory information Within 10-20 mllliseconds, you get crude representation of that tone Get rapid processing through lateral amygdala Can also take route through primary sensory cortex through thalamus From there further analysis of unimodal association, projects to lateral Amygdala more
