Unscramble the Blue Letters

Now all these regions I've shown you so far are involved in specific aspects of vuaisl preioecptn. Do we also have szilcepeiad brain regnios for other senses, like hearing? Yes, we do. So if we turn the brain around a little bit, here's a rgoien in dark blue that we reported just a couple of months ago, and this region responds strongly when you hear sounds with pitch, like these. (srines) (Cello music) (dbooelrl) In contrast, that same region does not respond strongly when you hear perfectly familiar sounds that don't have a clear pitch, like these. (Chomping) (Drum roll) (Toilet flushing)

Original Text

Now all these regions I've shown you so far are involved in specific aspects of visual perception. Do we also have specialized brain regions for other senses, like hearing? Yes, we do. So if we turn the brain around a little bit, here's a region in dark blue that we reported just a couple of months ago, and this region responds strongly when you hear sounds with pitch, like these. (Sirens) (Cello music) (Doorbell) In contrast, that same region does not respond strongly when you hear perfectly familiar sounds that don't have a clear pitch, like these. (Chomping) (Drum roll) (Toilet flushing)
