Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was used in conjunction with an auditory task to assess fetal activation in the primary auditory cortex. Activation was found in the fetal right Heschl’s gyrus in response to an auditory task. This is a first report of fetal brain response to an “internal” auditory stimulus.
