Neural mechanisms of octave equivalence

Dear List,


Is anyone aware on theoretical or empirical papers on the neural mechanisms of octave equivalence in auditory perception?


Interestingly, recent works suggests that songbirds may not perceive octave equivalence:


Hoeschele, M., Weisman, R. G., Guillette, L. M., Hahn, A. H., & Sturdy, C. B. (2013). Chickadees fail standardized operant tests for octave equivalence. Animal cognition, 16(4), 599-609.
