The time course of poststimulatory adaptation of the inferior colliculus central nucleus (ICC) of CBB6F1 hybrid mice to sound sequences, specifically, series of four tonal stimuli presented at intervals of 0, 2, 4, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500, 700, 1000, and 1500 ms were studied. Assessment of the adaptation of the entire neuronal population have shown that,(More)
Neurophysiological data on the evaluation of neural correlates of the involvement of auditory critical bands in sound localization and recognition are presented. Single unit activity was recorded extracellularly in the central nucleus of the inferior colliculus in house mouse females. In the first part, the neuronal sensitivity to acoustic signals(More)
Neurophysiologic data on participation of the critical band mechanism in sound localization and recognition are presented. Single unit activity was recorded extracellularly-in the central nucleus of inferior colliculus of the house mouse females. First, we studied sensitivity of neurons to acoustic signals simulating spectral localization cues (notch noise(More)
ditory system. If the frequency distance between spectral components of the sound is wider than the bandwidth of the filter, these spectral components get into different filters and could be perceived separately. In other case, they excite the same frequency filter and could not be resolved. Thus, the critical bands are the measure of the ability of the(More)
elicit diverse vocalization [2, 7]. The complete absence of neurophysiologic studies on dorsomedial nucleus in the house mouse inferior colliculus and anatomical projections revealed in this structure to the brainstem nuclei involved into the acoustic communication [4] substantiate necessity and promise of the study of spectro-temporal response(More)
We demonstrate laser slowing of a hot thulium atomic beam using the nearly closed cycling transition 4f(13)6s(2)((2)F(o))(J=7/2)<-->4f(12)((3)H(5))5d(3/2)6s(2)(J=9/2) at 410.6 nm. Atoms are decelerated to velocities around 25 m/s by a 40 cm Zeeman slower. The flux of slowed atoms is evaluated as 10(7) s(-1)cm(-2). The experiment explicitly indicates the(More)
