  1. First column: phonetic transcription (SAMPA) of the 10 most frequent syllables of our children’s book corpus; second column: number of neurons representing all realizations of these syllables within the phonetic map (number of exemplars); third column: mean variance of the auditory states of all realizations by activating specific neurons within the phonetic map, representing exemplars for a syllable; fourth column: mean variance of the auditory states of all realizations activated by the training items directly.
