The '''primary auditory cortex''' is the region of the [[brain]] that is responsible for processing of [[auditory system|auditory]] ([[sound]]) information.

As with other primary sensory cortical areas, auditory sensations reach [[perception]] only if received and processed by a [[cerebral cortex|cortical]] area. Evidence for this comes from [[lesion study|lesion studies]] in human patients who have sustained damage to cortical areas through [[tumor]]s or [[stroke]]s, or from animal experiments in which cortical areas were deactivated by cooling or locally applied drug treatment. Damage to the Primary Auditory Cortex in humans leads to a loss of any '[[awareness]]' of sound, but an ability to react reflexively to sounds remains as there is a great deal of [[subcortical]] processing in the [[auditory brainstem]] and [[midbrain]].
