The region of the brain that processes sound is the primary auditory cortex. It is located on the temporal lobe, and roughly corresponds with Broadmann areas 41 and 42 of the cerebral cortex. The secondary auditory cortex has also been indicated in the processing of harmonic, melodic and rhythmic patterns, and it is supposed that the tertiary auditory cortex integrates everything into the overall experience of music.
