    Notes: Summary Auditory-evoked responses in single neurons from rhesus monkey auditory cortex were measured under four relatively well defined behavioral and physiological conditions: (1) monkey awake and performing a simple auditory reaction time task; (2) monkey awake but not performing a task (State A); (3) monkey in a drowsy or Stage 1 sleep state (State B); and (4) monkey anesthetized with a short-acting nonbarbiturate anesthetic. For most units studied the response evoked by the auditory stimulus was greater in the performance condition than in the nonperformance condition. Similarly, evoked activity was usually greater in State A than in State B. Finally, evoked responses under anesthesia were usually weaker than those obtained in the unanesthetized animal. Some exceptions were noted in each case. Differences in response patterns and in rate versus intensity functions of neurons were also found to be associated with the behavioral and physiological state of the preparation. No significant changes in unit spontaneous activity associated with changes in behavioral or physiological condition were observed.
